When I’m not on RG.us, I’m not at the beach either, despite living in Oz. I have pale skin and burn very easily, and end up looking like a seafood stick. Pink on side and white on the other.

Lyn

DOB July 27
Location: Los Angeles, USA
Jobs on RG.us: Promotion
Rupert Fan Because: Ron has always been my favorite HP character. I always felt that Rupert was the perfect Ron. Somewhere along the filming of Prisoner of Azkaban I realized I admired the actor attached to the character. I think Rupert has a wonderful laid back personality, a low-key sense of humor and great acting potential.
When I’m not on RG.us, I’m enjoying Baseball, movies, television, listening to audiobooks, and surfing the web.
