Characters - The Weasley Twins

'‘Fred, you next,’ the plump woman said.
‘I’m not Fred, I’m George,’ said the boy. ‘Honestly, woman, call yourself our mother? Can’t you
tell I’m George?’
‘Sorry, George, dear.’
‘Only joking, I am Fred,’ said the boy, and off he went.'

- Chapter Six, The Journey from Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry first meets Fred and George at King’s Cross station, when the Weasley family help him to locate platform nine and three-quarters. The twins help Harry to board the train with his school trunk, before recognising who Harry is.

Fred and George Weasley are well known for their antics in school, but are also very popular amongst their fellow Hogwarts students. And it seems that Pottermore users are firm fans of the twins as well.

We asked you yesterday on @Pottermore what you like about the comic duo and got some great responses:

We’ve also seen some great artwork of the twins on Pottermore, where their sense of humour – as well as their red hair – have been captured:
