First name

Since "Bill Weasley" is now "William Weasley" then shouldn't "Charlie Weasley" also be "Charles Weasley"? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 17:29, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

As long as he isn't named Charles in the books or interviews, he remains Charlie. The same would apply for Fred, who is never called Frederic.--Rodolphus 17:51, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
OK but when was Bill addressed as William? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 18:33, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
During his wedding ceremony. --Cubs Fan2007 (Talk to me) 18:53, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Why is the title currently "Charles Weasley"?
To quote Seth's answer from below, "Because he is named "Charles" in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (see this image)." --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 17:29, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

Charlie gay?

Should we really write about that? It is just speculation and JKR has said Charlie considers his job as more important. This has nothing to do with being gay.--Rodolphus 06:18, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

First of all I don't believe Charlie is gay. Second it does not really matter and plus it said as you said he is into his job. --Profiteor Ravenclaw 06:32, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Fan speculation in this matter does not count. We only record Canonical information. Until JK says anything to that effect, it should not be put in articles, and has been summarily removed. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 07:21, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
The article used as a source does not state that Charlie's reason for not marrying was his dedication to his job. Do we have another source for this information? If not, then I think it should be removed, because there's more than one possible explanation for why Charlie didn't marry. Starstuff (Owl me!) 15:59, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Didn´t JKR mention that in A Year in life?--Rodolphus 16:16, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

yeah she did --Profiteor Ravenclawcrest(Owl Me) 09:44, 2 May 2009 (UTC) 16:17, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Ah, okay. I've never seen YITL and am only going by interview transcripts that I find on Accio Quote. Starstuff (Owl me!) 16:20, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Does anyone know if Charlie will be portrayed in the final movies? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 12:06, 18 July 2009.

On, it says that Alex Crockford will be portraying Charlie in Deathly Hallows. Is that true? --Adumb1881 14:38, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

I think they may have made a mistake, since they also have him listed as Charlie in the Prisoner Of Azkaban video game, rather than the film. -Smonocco 19:19, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
Can anyone confirm who will be portraying Charlie in DH part 1? Or whether his character is completely omitted? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
Apparently Alex Crockford will be playing him again, although I have yet to see any pictures of him as Charlie and no reports/ interviews that I've come across have mentioned his appearance in the film. -Smonocco 09:50, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
Although IMDB is not reliable source, he is not even on that cast list. I haven't seen any photos of anyone resembling him from the abundance of wedding photos we've had, granted there are a lot of people at the wedding it is possible he isn't in any of the released stills. his role would be a cameo at most, considering none of the test screeners have mentioned his appearance. Interestingly, many other very minor roles have been cast for these films, I don't see why omitting the Best Man makes sense... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Hi, I have found a german source which says Alex Crockford will play Charlie Weasley again in Deathly Hallows. If you find it reliable I don't know. The source is: Harry granger 18:54, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

He is not in it according to some who have seen the film. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

No, he isn't in D.H.:1, unless he is very well hidden in the back of a scene. I therefore think it's highly unlikely that he will be in Part 2. Also we never got any official confirmation from either Warner Bros. or Alex Crockford that he would be appearing in either Part. -Smonocco 23:59, November 20, 2010 (UTC)
I saw a guy in the background when Bill and Fleur were dancing. He was short and had curly red hair and a beard. It's possible that he's Charlie (he looked like someone who deals with dragons). Not sure if it was Alex Crockford playing him, though. - Mr. Mortimer 13:26, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Is it possible to get a screen grab? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Hi, I saw yet this photo here in this Wiki: File:Rubeus Hagrid Olympe Maxime D H Wedding 1.jpeg. In the background behind Olympe Maxime is standing a red-haired bearded man clapping his hands. Perhaps this is the man who could be Charlie Weasley. Harry granger 20:46, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Pause it at this link at 31:48. He's on George's left: - Mr. Mortimer 22:48 November 28, 2010

Ah yes that could very well be him. We'd have to wait for the DVD to see if he is credited and for a higher resolution screenshot. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Hi-res pic of the dude who may be Charlie: Greater good, 20:51, 5 April, 2011


When was was Charlie mentioned in the Chamber of Secrets film? -Smonocco 13:36, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

As far as i remember, Ron or Arthur mentioned the name while they are inside at the Burrow, but still i am not 100% sure. --ÈnŔîčö DCRavenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 19:11, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Appearance of Charlie Weasley in Deathly Hallows

Harry granger 19:20, March 19, 2010 (UTC) I found a new source. Perhaps that is more trustful.

No...for example,Flitwick and Sprout are confirmed by WB and they not stay on the list. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pol 871 (talkcontribs).

I think they might have used I.M.Db. as a source for some of the actors. -Smonocco

Couldn't have graduated in 1991

In the Philosopher's Stone, the part of which is set in the autumn of 1991, Fred says "We haven't won (the Quidditch Cup) since Charlie left". (pp.114). On pp.113, McGonagall says "We need a better team than last year. Flattened in that last match by Slytherin...". There is thus the implication that Charlie Weasley must have left Hogwarts prior to the academic year 1990-1, in contrast to what is stated in this article. If Charlie had left only months earlier, Gryffindor would not have had a chance to win the Cup since, so Fred wouldn't say this. 00:06, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

See the "Behind the Scenes" section in the article. - Nick O'Demus 06:17, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

I think taht Charlie is one os many character who J.K. Rowling forgot in the first part of Deathly Hallows.

But, i dont understand why McGonagall didnt appear in the same that Charlie, i say that Minerva is one of the main character of the books, and she must to appear in it.

Charlie was not forgotten by Jo. In the book you can find him at the wedding of his brother Bill with Fleur and on Harry's birthday party. The filmmakers have probably left him out. He also will fight in the Battle of Hogwarts in the book, in Part 2 we don't know until now. Harry granger 20:40, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

First name (II)

But if he is only named Charlie in books and films, why does the article say Charles Weasley then?? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Harry granger (talkcontribs).

Because he is named "Charles" in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (see this image). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:11, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

charlie weasley in the wedding?

I have some reason to suspect this man is charlie weasley:

First: hair cut described in the book made ​​by Mrs. Weasley

second: an alleged friendship with Nymphadora Tonks with whom he studied in the same year

third, young appearance, much like tonks.

charlie weasley?

Charlie and tonks

charlie and tonks friendship

Middle name?

Wherefrom do we know that the middle name is Fabian as mentioned in the article? Harry granger 19:21, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

Why is his name as Charles Weasley? I don't remember that ever being said.

It comes from this source: [1], also given in the article. Click on the number to see. Harry granger 14:07, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

Process of elimination gives Charlie the middle name Septimus (after his paternal grandfather) as Bill has Arthur for their father and Percy has Ignatius for their maternal grandfather. 20:12, November 5, 2012 (UTC)

Marriage & Kids?

It says on the Gabrielle Delacour article that she and Charlie married and had five kids called Amelia, Ralph, Joan, Juliette and Jack and even has a link to Charlie's page. Quote:

"JKR announced that Gabrielle later married her brother-in-law Charlie Weasley and had five children; Amelia, Ralph, Joan, Juliette and Jack."

Shoudln't we put that on here? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

No, because it's fanon that YOU added to the article in the first place. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).


From what I've always heard, "Charles" is an anglicised version of the Latin name "Carol", which is still used as a boys' name in many parts of the world (e.g. Czech playwright Karel Čapek). Hence why Victorian author and mathematician Charles Luttwige Dodgson took the pen-name "Lewis Carroll"; it's a Latinised rearrangement of his first names.

"Karl" probably also comes from "Carol", but everything I've come across points to "Charles" deriving directly from "Carol", not from "Karl". -- RobertATfm 10:34, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

Featured article sign

I think this sign is not at its best place. It breaks the infobox.  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 19:55, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Infobox image

This was posted earlier today in my talk page-- "I've noticed some incorrect content both here and in the HP fandom at large. The image used of from the Daily Prophet cutting from the Weasleys' trip to Egypt does have Charlie Weasley in it. However, the person people assume is Charlie is, in fact, Percy. Not only is it actually a picture of the actor playing Percy, but the book mentions Percy wearing a fez in the photo. Additionally, if you look to the right in the back row, you find an unidentified Weasley who is of a stockier build, as described in the books. This Weasley, being the only unidentified one, can only be the real Charlie Weasley."

Thoughts? What's being said here seems to make sense to me, but the image has been there for so long that I didn't want to take any action without a discussion first. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:59, August 27, 2013 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. On the page Weasley family you can find this photo of the whole family. I would say: Percy is the second from right and he's also wearing a fez. The description of the books does not always fit the description of the actors, but the face of this second of right is much more the face of Percy.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 11:28, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
I only want to add this image from Alex Crockford, the actor who "played" Charlie Weasley. What do you think? I would say the above mentioned picture is correct for Charlie Weasley.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 16:34, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
I think that Charlie is the one between Percy (wearing the fez) and Arthur. (If that makes sense :/ --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:31, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, Hunnie Bunn, but that's the very first Bill Weasley, "played" by Richard Fish. Have a look on the photo of Richard Fish on his page.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 17:53, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Charlie is between Ron and Molly. It goes: Fred (or George), Ron, Charlie (background), Molly, Ginny (front), Arthur, Bill (background, right), Percy, George (or Fred). --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 19:31, June 13, 2014 (UTC)

Dead source

The image used as a source for his name is not available on that link. Can anyone archive the image locally or find another solution? Loon Wolf (talk) 23:17, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Which link do you mean?  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 23:26, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
The 4th, with a "(see this image)" as a source for "Charles". (And by the way, the 1st one, for his birthday is dead as well.) Loon Wolf (talk) 19:06, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
Fixed. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:51, November 11, 2017 (UTC)

Questionable source

I don't believe that this Link should be used to speculate about Charlie's possible appearance in an early draft of the film script. I can see no indication that this script is at all genuine, it's quite bad with numerous errors, spelling mistake on page 70 etc. It looks like a fan rewrite of the film to me, not canon.

Recommend its use in this page be removed.


Generally Charlie is considered to be rather smaller, perfect figure for a Seeker, but then in HPHBP, chapter “A Sluggish Memory” there is this dialog:

“I forgot you’d already done it. … I’d better pass my test first time,” said Ron, looking anxious. “Fred and George did.”
“Charlie failed, though, didn’t he?”
“Yeah, but Charlie’s bigger than me” — Ron held his arms out from his body as though he was a gorilla — “so Fred and George didn’t go on about it much … not to his face anyway …”

So, which way it is? Ron is repeatedly commented by Molly Weasley as quite tall, so if he is bigger than Ron, how does it fit with his Seeker-like person?

Infobox picture

Why was the picture of Charles Weasley, portrayed by Alex Crockford, changed against a drawing?  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 22:50, September 30, 2017 (UTC)

It's official art from Pottermore. While I don't think in general we should use Pottermore art over actor images, Charlie I think makes an exception, since the only available image is so small and low quality. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:09, September 30, 2017 (UTC)
Mhm, I don't find this pic was bad. But if you think so...  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 19:37, October 1, 2017 (UTC)

Why has the infobox image been changed from a headshot to a full-body picture? There are several reasons why a headshot image is preferable. One of them is that this wiki's policies state that discussion must be held before an image is changed. — evilquoll (talk) 09:44, June 6, 2018 (UTC)

Charlie in Hogwarts Mystery

1984 First Years

We know Charlie was at school at Hogwarts in 1984 and was a first year at the time, due to his age difference from Ron. We also know that he is in game due to one of the studnets asking the player if they have "met Bill and Charlie Weasley." So, is it possible that the orange-haired first year standing next to Tonks in this image is Charlie? {{SUBST:User:Logo8th/Sig}} 23:34, January 28, 2018 (UTC)

Possible infobox image change

Unlike a certain user whom I will not name, I'm going to do this by the rules, which require a discussion.

There has been a lot of controversy over the infobox image recently; the image used was admittedly not very good, but was the best of a bad bunch. However, the above user keeps changing this image (without any attempt at discussion) to one which to my mind is even worse, as it's a full-body image and thus unsuitable for an infobox, especially if head-only alternatives are available, as in this case.

However, all this is my opinion, and this wiki runs on democracy, so on to the vote.

Which do you prefer? My vote is for replacement 2. — evilquoll (talk) 15:34, June 6, 2018 (UTC)

I would love to add a fourth possible image, which IMO would be much better than the two images above from the game. In the above images, I do not agree with the full-body image, and the second cropped picture does not show Charlie's face clearly since he's looking up. If no-one will decide on a picture from the game, then I vote to keep the one we have now from Pottermore. But for now, my vote goes to the below picture, replacement 3. - Kates39 (talk) 16:21, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, like Andre Egwu, I was waiting for Charlie's character to be unlocked so that a shot with the correct color and lighting can be taken. That'd be a variation of replacement 3. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 16:36, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
Until a better image is available, I hereby change my vote to replacement 3. — evilquoll (talk) 16:47, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
Looking back, I went checking the PM images, and found the uploaded versions (not just for this character, but most in Category:Images by Owen Davey) not doing the art work just; there's ways to get images in their original states without screenshooting. I've replaced the image, so while I'm not sure if the "quality" was ever one of the issues, I think I can say it shouldn't be any longer. And for me personally, if removing that particular factor, I don't really mind the said image lol. I know other characters only resorted to using the PM illustrations by Owen Davey when there's no other choice, but there's some cohesiveness to it, and I do think it depicted the older Charlie rather well, in a simplistic way (the tan and the burn scar due to work.) If the final vote is to have him in his younger years in the infobox, my only wish would be to at least have the PM one still appear on the article, if that makes some sense. =D
--Sammm✦✧(talk) 18:42, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
I know it's better lighting when he unlocks, but until then I think replacement 3 would be the perfect substitute if we decide to change the picture before then. It could be a while before we reach the point of unlocking him. It's not a bad picture because it's a bit darker. It's clear. It's kind of the same dark background of the Pottermore one now. Then we can replace it with the lighter one when Charlie unlocks. - Kates39 (talk) 19:33, June 6, 2018 (UTC)
(note, the blank space are kept so that all friendship profile pics have the same dimension, Tonks' hair took up all that space in hers. Those pics look well when having them placed side-by-side)
For the record, I vote to not change the image in the infobox after more thoughts, and just have the HM image placed in his school year section. As explained earlier, now the the image quality issue is out of the way, I find Owen Davey's version accurate and sufficient enough.--Sammm✦✧(talk) 23:58, June 15, 2018 (UTC)
