Who are Ron and Viktor?
Ron Weasley is the best friend of the famous Harry Potter. Together with their other friend, Hermione, they attend Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Ron stands tall with red hair and freckles, always cracking a joke. In his fourth year at Hogwarts, the tri-wizard tournament is announced, and it is known that other schools will come to Hogwarts and participate in this huge contest. One of the schools coming happens to be from Bulgaria, where Viktor Krum resides, one of Ron favorite Quidditch stars. Unfortunately, Ron is about to wake up to Viktor and his antics with a certain brown-haired girl. Ron won't like it, not one bit.
Viktor Krum is tall, dark and brooding. He is a world-famous seventeen year old Quidditch star from Bulgaria. He seems like a loner, and never says much. When he visits Hogwarts he takes a liking to Hermione Granger, much to the distaste of her red-haired friend.
Obviously, if you read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire you should know just what happened between Ron and Viktor. If you do, and believe in the rivalry, then join. If not, read the book and come back later. :p
Who is the young man in the layout picture? Is that the person they casted for Viktor in the HP:GOF movie?
No, it's not. That happens to be mega-popular Orlando Bloom of Lord of the Rings fame. I saw the picture one day and thought it looked like Viktor (dark, moody etc) and used it. Although, if you go the website Filling the Shoes, the list Orlando as a possible candidate for Viktor.
