This is how it should have been. In the movies Harry doesn't have green eyes like his mother.

I wish they would changed this because it keeps bugging me. He looks just like his father, James, with messy black hair, but he has his mother's green eyes.

That being said, I still think it was a poor attempt as it was such a major plot point. They had the cgi skills to create Voldemort, the myriad of mythical creatures such as dragons and dementors, and create a castle using cgi, yet they can't edit the eyes of one character on the film? I know he's present in more scenes than most of the mythical creatures, but I still find it a poor effort.

In addition, a simple solution would have been to cast lily's actress (both young and old) as someone with the same coloured eyes as Dan, so even if they weren't both green as stated in the books, at least if they were the same colour, the so often repeated line 'you have your mother's eyes' would be valid.

(yes, I'm definitely over this issue after more than ten years of the films ;).

Lol I thought you were talking about Prince Harry, his mother Diana's "green" eyes, and his father James Hewitt.

Gen Z is right.

Millennials really are obsessed with Harry Potter.

How tragic.

This bugged me so much.. So for ten years.. We have been told that Harry's eyes are like her mother's... FINE .. Dan's eyes are blue, not green, ITS OK.. as long as lily's eyes are blue too... Adult lily are blue... But little lily are brown? WHAT? I mean this is a mega production, the crew has spent millions in special effects, sets, make up, costumes, etc.. But they cant buy some effing blue contacts?! Really WHAT? Even Alan Rickman had to use black contacts to be seen more sinister or some shit like that!

I know the answer to this one.

Lily has green cat-eyes, therefore so does Harry.

They did buy green contacts for exactly this reason, but Daniel Radcliffe had so much trouble tolerating them that they eventually discarded them. He was only quite a small kid when they started, remember.

Sadly, he was not the actor Vivien Leigh was, who was able to convince the public she had green eyes even though they were grey-blue.

OP is probably one of those, ‘Hermione is BLACK because she has BIG BUSHY HAIR’ people.

I'm one of the rare millennials who isn't into HP. I attempted to read the (terribly-written) books but just couldn't get into them. The main characters (especially Harry and Hermione) were completely unlikable as well
