Last week you could read our interview with our first Pop Culture Fan, Stef. Today we are interviewing someone new. Meet Yvonne, a proud Slytherin and Disney fan. What is her favourite Disney film? Who is her favourite HP character? And does she think Disneyland or Disneyworld is better? Let’s find out!
Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Literally the most difficult question of all time! So basically, I live in Dublin Ireland. I work as a preschool teacher. It can be very stressful but I love it. In my spare time I like to go to concerts, watch movies and do a bit of travelling. I’m a very proud Slytherin and wear my house colours with pride. Majority of my best friends I met in a queue for a concert or as a lot of my childhood was based online I’ve also met a lot of friends online too!
You say Slytherin is your Hogwarts house. Does that mean you are a big Harry Potter fan?
Of course! I’ve read the books and seen the movies billions of times. I like to take an annual trip to the studio tour in London and I’m not long back from wizarding world in Orlando.
What makes you a true Slytherin?
I think I’m a true Slytherin because I’m quite ambitiously for cunning and I will do anything I have to to get what I want. I’m a very determined person.
What does Harry Potter mean to you?
A hell of a lot. I grew up with Harry Potter. I brought my nephew to see the first movie and we’ve gone every movie since. He’s also a big fan and it’s something we completely bonded over growing up. We’re the only potterheads in the family. I base friendships around it so for me it is very important!
Who is your favourite character in the series?
Snape! I also really love Ron, Draco and Sirius but Snape has a special place in my heart!
So you don’t understand all the Snape hate?
No I completely understand why. He was an asshole. Maybe I’m just attracted to assholes.
I know you also love Disney. Are your favourite Disney characters also the assholes?
Not really! Beauty and the Beast is my favourite so i really love Belle and Beast. Obviously. But on the flip side I’ve grown this attraction the Gaston recently. I think it’s because of the live action.
I have to say, I hated Gaston in the animation but Luke Evans kinda made me fall in love too. Do you also identify with Belle?
In some ways. I enjoy a good book and I’m quite curious and would probably had a look around the castle a lot sooner than Belle did!
So you’ve been to Disneyland and World. Which is your favourite and why?
Disney World was my favourite. Don’t get me wrong, Disneyland is also incredible but Disney World is just like a different place altogether. It’s absolutely huge and so much more things to see and do. And of course the weather was so good so that’s a bonus!
Lastly, which Disney live action film are you most looking forward to?
