Frank Longbottom portrayed by Josh Hutcherson

Frank Longbottom is a canon character from the Harry Potter books. He was a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1969 to 1977, and Headboy in his seventh year. As a former prefect, Frank got to know Lily Evans and in their years at Hogwarts, they became friends.

In the summer of 1977 he married Alice Longbottom, an old girlfriend  whom he went to Hogwarts with. They are both currently training to become Aurors, with Alastor 'Mad-eye' Moody as their coach.


There is not much written on Franks physical appearance. It is implied that he is quite good looking however, as Alice overhears a group of younger girls commenting on him, "he's always been a dream, easy to miss, but if you look".

Frank is hard working, often quite serious, and generally obeys the rules. His position as head boy is an indication of his ambition and studiousness. He is sweet, and generally loyal, despite his minor infidelity during the beginning of his seventh year at Hogwarts.


Alice and Frank have been dating since third year, when they went on their first Hogsmeade trip, together. In other students eyes, they seem to be the perfect couple—but in chapter four (Snaps and the Second Week) it's revealed that the two of them have relationship problems. Later on in the story, it is revealed that Frank had been unfaithful, kissing Carlotta Meloni on two seperate occasions. Alice and Franks relationship ends for a short period of time, but eventually Alice forgives him, and they reconcile in March of their seventh year at Hogwarts

When Alice and Frank graduate from Hogwarts, they immediately start their Auror training. After realising just how dangerous this job is, and how risky their lives have become, Frank proposes and the two of them get married, all in one day ("Old, New, Ballroom and Blue"). Lily is a bridesmaid. The Marauders, Sam Dearborn and a few others are the only ones present.

Frank Longbottom and Lily Evans have a strong friendship—this is probably due to the fact that they spent a lot of time together when Lily was a prefect and Frank was Head Boy. 

Frank is good friends with the marauders and Adam McKinnon as well, often pictured talking to and bantering with James and Sirius especially. However, he is more often pictured with Alice, as they seem to be almost inseparable during their relationship.

After "The Life and Times"Edit

Frank Longbottom gets tortured to insanity by Bellatrix Lestrange, along with his wife, Alice Longbottom, leaving their one-year-old son, Neville Longbottom, to his grandmother. Although still alive, Alice and Frank are left permanently in St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.
