Ooooo interesting question.
Richard would be a three way tie between Gryffindor,
Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Richard has a very clear idea of his own opinions and
what he deems to be morally acceptable. Particular in terms of his politics, he
votes labour, is anti-gun, vocally gay rights etc. He has a strong sense of
justice and he also seems very generous and giving, like he would go out of his
way to help others, which I guess crosses over into more Hufflepuff territory.
He’s also tolerant, patient and kind which is again Hfflepuff traits. He must
be to some extent brave as well, he has a phobia of water and volunteered to
get water boarded for real when he did Spooks, showing commitment, tenacity and
bravery. He seems to go above and beyond for a lot of his work. However, more
than that he is very studious isn’t he? Intelligent man, very switched on to
current affairs, reads extensively, and values the importance of intellect, books
and hard work. He’s also pretty quiet and shy, doesn’t generally contribute in
public group situations such as press conferences, interviews unless directly
asked as opposed to more extroverted people like Martin Freeman or James
Nesbit. It’s difficult to choose which between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw but I
think I’d have to go Ravenclaw, though only by a tiny fraction.
Lee I think Hufflepuff, but with strong elements of a Ravenclaw.
Like Richard, He too seems to have a very strong sense of right and wrong but I
think it’s his affectionate nature that makes him Hufflepuff. He seems more
playful and friendly in interviews, I think hes more comfortable in his own
skin than Richard is. He’s shy like Richard but cheekier and contributes
slightly more to group discussion, he also doesn’t seen to place quite as much
emphasis on the intellectual process of acting in the same way Richard does, he
works equally hard but it seems like very much a different process. Hes just so
cuddly and adorable with people like Anna Friel and Evangeline you know? Also
his penchant for weed, ‘cause lets face is Hufflepuff is the stoner house xD.
Not that Lee is a stoner.
For reference, on the Harry Potter wiki these are the
characteristics of Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw;
- Hard Work
- Fair play
- Unafraid of Toil
Can you imagine Rich being kind of shy, bookish but very witty, being swept of his feet by Lee, the cheeky overly-friendly Quidditch player? Cuuuute.
They both seem to fit nicely into both categories but for the sake of making it interesting I put them both in different houses. Do you agree or disagree?
Both houses preach the importance of acceptance and tolerance which I think is very relevant in the context of some parts of Richards fandom.
Thanks for the interesting question btw it certainly made me think :D.
