Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone/Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - Susan Bornes: Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, or Slytherin?
During the sorting you see a girl, Susan Bornes, being sorted into Hufflepuff. Later during the scene where Harry has his first Potions lesson, you can clearly see Malfoy, who is a Slytherin, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione who are Gryffindors. You can also see Susan breifly. If you have the extra footage, you can clearly see her sitting behind Malfoy and next to Ron. I thought only two houses share a class.

The girl playing Susan Bones has been confirmed as Chris Columbus' daughter, which is why she's an extra in so many scenes.

First of all, it's Susan Bones. Secondly, the girl playing her is the director's daughter, which is why she's in so many scenes that she shouldn't be in. It's not a slip-up, cause they did it on purpose.

Yes, but did you also notice that Malfoy is in the Transfiguration lesson, also when he wasnt in the book? They probably just did that to increase numbers in the lesson.

I think this is simply one of the many cases when the movie doesn't quite follow the details of the book. In the movie more than two houses can have the same class together. I believe it is the same in charms...

Remember, this is a movie based on a book. While the book may have stated that only 2 houses are allowed per class, there is NO mention of this in the movie. Inconsistencies between a movie and the book it's based on isn't really a slip-up, because it most likely is a conscious/deliberate choice on the part of the director.

In the book sometimes only one house has a class at a time, which brings it up to a total of eight people for Gryffindor. While that is ok when you are reading it, when you see it, it would look more like a toturing session rather than an actual class, so I think they just put all the houses together to avoid this.

The films are different from the books. In the books there were only two houses in a class, but in the films they have all four houses in each class. Susan Bones is indeed Hufflepuff but you'll probably find some Ravenclaws and Slytherins in with the Griffindors too!

I noticed while watching the movie that the houses are all taking the classes at the same time. If you watch during the transfuguration and charms classes, you can see Draco, and they don't have those classes with him. I think the director just put him there because he could.

Susan doesn't exactly play a big role in the movie or the book. Maybe she was simply playing the role of a different student to save time and money.

Yes, she is the director daughter and yes, she is in many extra scenes, but if you notice there are Slytherins, Hufflepuffs, Gryffindors, and most likely people from Ravenclaw in one class. But then again you dont see all of the sorting so you dont know. But the producers probably didnt want to take the time to make sure that certain extras had certain badges and so forth. SO they just took some extras and stuck them in a scene.

I think she was at the Gryffindor house table at the start of term feast too.

I agree that is a slip-up, but I know why she was put in all those scenes. The girl who plays Susan Bones is the director's (Chris Colombus's) daughter. No wonder shes everywhere.

I would like to give an explanation to two comments people made for this slip up, One comment said "how did colin creevrys camera work and Jk Rowling has answered this herself, she says that it is a magic camera that does not require batteries or electricty to work. Another comment made was how did the house elf dissapear when you can not evaportate in hogwarts grounds, this is because House elves have special powers which they use to appear and dissapear. Also it is true that the girl playing Susan Bones is Chris columbus daughter so this is why she was in a lot of the scenes.

Well, whatever you saw in the movie, Susan Bones is definitely in Hufflepuff in the book

At the movie,the Firebolt was sent to Harry in the end,though it should be sent to Harry in the middle.At the movie,Harry learned that it was sent by Sirius Black because of the string attached,thugh Harry should have learned that Sirius sent it because of the letter that was sent in the train.
