When I Was 12: Clemence Poesy

Clemence Posey
As Fleur Delacour she's a model student at the Beauxbatons school, but what was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire actress Clemence Poesy like when she was at school in real life?

Check out her answers to our questions!

Did you have school dinners or packed lunch?

When you go to school in France you don't bring your own food in - you go to the canteen which is most of the time quite disgusting! But then you'd go to the sweet shop next door and buy sweets!

What was your most embarrassing moment?

I was so bad at sport that every time I had to do something in front of anyone it was really embarrassing as I was always the worst one in my class.

What was your favourite cartoon?

I'm a bit weird - I didn't have a TV at home! But on Sunday nights when I'd go to my friends' house I'd watch some cartoons there.

Who was your hero?

I was really into the whole 1970s peace and hippy thing, so The Beatles, Martin Luther King and Ghandi.

Who was your favourite teacher?

Either my English or French teachers as they were my favourite subjects.

Were you ever bullied?

I was never bullied but I wasn't the most popular. I had a small group of friends.

What was your worst ever punishment at school?

I went to a school that used a new way to educate children and it was against school policy to give punishments so I never got any!

Did you have a favourite piece of clothing?

I had some awful pink shoes that I don't remember but all my friends keep telling me about! And I wanted a pair of ski pants so bad but my mum wouldn't let me have them so I told her I'd put elastic at the bottom of my tights if I didn't get some!
