Why that? The article states he´s a Gryffindor.--Rodolphus 15:12, 19 July 2009 (UTC)


Fay is a girl's name. Is it made explicitly clear in the game that Fay is male? Do other characters refer to Fay with "he," "him," "his," etc.? If not, then I think we should presume the character is female, based on the name. Starstuff (Owl me!) 08:47, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

She is most definately a girl, seeing as how she's in Hermione Granger's dormitory. Eleanor Rigby | talk | contribs 21:44, October 3, 2009 (UTC)


How can Fay taking Potions be canon? Hary, Ron and Hermione were the only Gryffindors who took the NEWT class I thought.--Rodolphus 13:39, April 21, 2010 (UTC)

Bumping--Rodolphus 19:24, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

Fay taking 6th year Potions under Slughorn CANNOT be cannon! In the HBP chapter 9 Harry states specifically that the only Gryffindors are him, Ron, and Hermione. (page 182, US 1st edition, handback) this is later reaafirmed which his notes on the seating arrangements on the next page (183), and since there were no late comers, we know Fay was not in the class. And don't tell me she missed the first class, that's bullocks. So, in recap, the HBP book says Fay did not take 6th year potions. Someone with better editing skills than me should change the article accordingly, perhaps with some slosh about changing career plans, since you need Potions to be an Auror.

Okay is this seriously canon? I'd love a clip or reference in the article which could indicate that this is Fay Dunbar? And how do we know the unnamed actress in the photo is Fay? Plus Dunbar never appeared on Rowling's list. Travy1991 20:25, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. I think this article takes speculation too far. I think it should stick to covering Fay's one conclusively known appearance in the DS version of the HBP game and not try to pin her name onto other unidentified Gryffindor girls in Harry's year. Starstuff (Owl me!) 00:54, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
Ditto. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:47, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
Fay also appears on the student list in the PS2 version of the POA game, but unlike the DS version of the HBP game, NPC characters don't have fixed locations, but spawn randomly whenever you enter a room. So it's not like Fay can be pinned down to a single NPC character in that game. Starstuff (Owl me!) 21:17, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

This isn't canon because that Gryffindor the other two Gryffindor girls have to be Sophie roper, lily moon, Sally-Anne Perks or Sally Smith. It is less likely Sally smith because she is most likely Hufflepuff. Has anyone considered that Fay is canon but she is a year younger than Harry, just really advanced so she is taking higher classes maybe? And how do we know the movie character is the video game character? (JanzPotter (talk) 14:56, July 8, 2014 (UTC))

There's more than ten students per house per year: as explained on Pottermore, the forty students represent only a portion of each year. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 15:15, July 8, 2014 (UTC)


Do we know who the actress who plays Fay in the movies is because I've been trying to look everywhere for this but I can't seem to find it

Possible Apperearance in DH: Part 2

Fay Dunbar


Well, she look like her. The lips, nose, hair and cheek. It's pretty the same and she stands behind Lavender and Parvati. Should we add it to the page? or maybe in the BTS section?Zaki alwi 16:42, March 15, 2012 (UTC)

I have to agree it does look like the same actress. (JanzPotter (talk) 14:57, July 8, 2014 (UTC))


Might it possibly be said in the behind the scenes section that she may be related to Alex Dunbar of the Scottish rugby team? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:00, March 5, 2014 (UTC)


I've played most of the games, both on PS2 and PC, and I can say I recognized her quotes more than her name. Where is the source stating she wanted to become an Auror? User:Simen Johannes Fagerli
