Photo of Narcissa From Half Blood Prince August 28, 2008

Posted by Me in Images, Narcissa Malfoy.
Narcissa Malfoy

This is the first movie image I’ve seen of Narcissa.   I have to say that this isn’t what I imagined her to look like at all.

First of all, what’s up with her hair?   In the books, she’s all blond, like her husband and son.    This black on top, blond on the bottom and sides is decidedly creepy looking.    Narcissa is supposed to look classy and refined, not creepy.   Creepy is for Bellatrix, not Narcissa.

Secondly, her outfit looks bulky and awkward — it actually looks as if it’s made out of double-knit polyester.  I imagine Narcissa wearing all-natural fabrics that are elegant and flowing, not something that makes her look like a social climbing muggle real estate agent.

Third, she looks too old to be Narcissa.  The appearance of the underside of her chin makes the actress look about ten years older than her actual 41 years.  I wasn’t thrilled with the choice of actress to begin with, and this picture isn’t making me change my opinion.  I certainly hope that her acting will outshine the fact that she’s not a good visual match for Narcissa.

But this is only a side view and not a clear one at that.  Hopefully, more images will become public before the movie is released next year that will look better.    I do wish they’d have made her all-blond like she was in the books, however.

I have SO MANY problems with this picture, it isn’t funny. Allow me to list them! lol

1: Narcissa is described with “long blonde hair streaming down her back” in chapter two of HBP. NOT with multicolored…

2: She is distraught over possibly losing her son and in this pic, she looks pissed about having to touch Severus! lol

3: They are supposed to be kneeling.

4: Bella should be standing over them with her wand touching their interlocked HANDS!!! lol

5: Narcissa looks older than Bella and we all know that Bella is the oldest and Cissy is the youngest…

6: Her clothes…

I could go on. but if this picture is any indicator, I will be upset with this movie… They should have cast *ME* as Narcissa Malfoy! lol

just something to think about…her hair could be completely blond with a shadow in this picture to make it look multi-colored

The actress is okay- i liked her in the Ring-but i definatly figured they would use someone different. and i agree- i pictured her young looking and platinum blonde, like the other two. Bellatrix is supposed to be the older sister and she looks a decade younger. Narcissa looks like she could be Bellatrix’s aunt, or mom, or even Draco’s grandmother.

I have seen heaps of other pics of her in her role as Narcissa and her hair is half black half white in all of them! IT’S HIDEOUS! Why would they do this to me!
And she looks about 100 years old. SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING!!!!
