I just watched The Deathly Hallows Part 2 on TV (so apologies for no screen shot). At the end when we see Harry's and Ginny's family enter the station to board the Hogwarts Express there are 3 kids

  • One is their son who Harry talks to about the Sorting Hat's decision (as he expressed concern about being put in Slytherin)

  • One I assume is their daughter who is too young to go to Hogwarts

There was also a third kid who went into the station just before Harry and his son entered together, the one with dark curly hair. He is also seen on the train with Harry's son when the kids wave to their parents as the train leaves.

Who is this third kid?

1 Answer 1


This is James Potter, Harry and Ginny's oldest son. In the book version of Deathly Hallows, the three children have the following exchange, which more-or-less matches with the dialogue you describe:

"It won't be long, and you'll be going too," Harry told her.

"Two years," sniffed Lily. "I want to go now!"

The commuters stared curiously at the owls as the family wove its way toward the barrier between platforms nine and ten, Albus's voice drifted back to Harry over the surrounding clamor; his sons had resumed the argument they had started in the car.

"I won't! I won't be a Slytherin!"

"James, give it a rest!" said Ginny.

"I only said he might be," said James, grinning at his younger brother. "There's nothing wrong with that. He might be in Slytherin"

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Epilogue "19 Years Later"

Although I haven't seen the movie version, the picture of James Potter on the Harry Potter Wikia seems to match your description:

James Potter II

The first child you describe is Albus Severus Potter1, Harry and Ginny's middle child, who is starting his first year at Hogwarts:

Albus Potter

The second child you describe is Lily Potter, Harry and Ginny's youngest:

Lily Potter II

And here's a picture of the kids waving from the Hogwarts Express2:

2 As to the identities of the girls in that picture, the one nearest the window is Rose Weasley, Hermione and Ron's oldest child. The other two are unidentified as far as I can tell, but one of them is possibly Bill and Fleur's daughter Victoire Weasley. However, no actress was credited for the role, so we can't be sure. I've posted a follow-up question, so please weigh in if you have any more info

    In the books, isn't Lupin and Tonks' son there, too?

    @Raphael, I don't know, but he'd be 19 by then, wouldn't he? Commented Mar 17, 2015 at 7:16

    @Raphael He doesn't appear, but he's mentioned; one of the other characters mentions seeing him and Victoire making out in a corner. Either way, it wouldn't make sense for him to be the character asked about, for exactly the reason Arturo mentions: he's graduated Commented Mar 17, 2015 at 11:28
  • I see. I probably remembered the mention from book. Thanks for clarifying! (cc @ArturoTorresSánchez)
