Know Thyself follows an unnamed boy (Christian Coulson) on his “journey as he walks though the empty rural landscape” after the loss of someone he loves.

This isn’t Bonnie‘s first time working with Christian, he played Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

“Landscape as a character or a space in which a character can change is definitely a recurring theme in my work,” Bonnie told Elle UK.

She continued to say, “I am excited to announce that I am currently in the development stage of my next short film. It’s working title is Have A Nice Day.”

    NOT her first time writing and directing a short film! in 2012 she presented ‘Separate we come, separate we go’ in Cannes, starring David Thewlis (Lupin). She is amazing, sadly not many people pay attention.

    She doesn’t need lots of people to pay attention. Only those who matter to her and/or her career. And slowly, she’s building up her credibility. Good for her.

    Boring. Rich parents. Yucks

    @alana: All the HP kids had rich parents lbr here lol

    I don’t find her boring. I find it great and interesting she’s into writing and directing. Saw her first short film online and it’s really good. Love to see her new short, especially since it stars her Chamber of Secrets co-star Christian Coulson.

    She does more directing because she doesn’t get good role offers. Pity though. She is a talented actress. Lookwise not so mainstream and still a bit limited in her dramatic means, but with a feeling for her roles and potential.

    @Roddy: I think that’s part of the case and also part she is interested in directing and writing. She did go to college for that lol. But yeah it’s a shame. While After the Dark wasn’t the greatest film, it showed Bonnie has potential. That and her play she did in London. She got some great reviews for that.
