We’re no stranger to celebs who adore Harry Potter and his adventures across the seven-book series (and subsequent eight-part film franchise, and spin-off, and play…). Ariana Grande blew our minds earlier this summer when she debuted her one-of-a-kind custom-made Dumbledore denim jacket. Our girl Jennifer Lawrence literally screamed at Potter-portrayer Daniel Radcliffe in excitement the first time she met him. Harry Potter is just a universal story that everyone, famous or not, can’t help but love.

Now, we can add actress/model/all around super-cool human being Margot Robbie to the ever-growing list of celebs who have outed themselves as Potter superfans.

In a recent interview with ELLE, Robbie opened up about her Calvin Klein campaign, upcoming projects, Harley Quinn’s signature scent – and, most importantly, being a huge HP fan.

When the interviewer mentioned that she’d heard the Suicide Squad actress was a huge Hogwarts buff, Robbie replied that she will “talk to you about Harry Potter all day.” (Same, girl. Same.) Of course, the next question you ask any Harry Potter fan is what house they’re in – and Margot had a pretty hilarious answer at the ready.

OMG! Robbie totally just admitted to cheating on the Pottermore quiz, which sounds positively Slytherin-ish, if you ask me. But honestly, I’m pretty sure she’s not alone in wanting desperately to end up in Gryffindor, at any cost.

Harry Potter himself essentially talked the Sorting Hat into putting him in Gryffindor instead of Slytherin, so Robbie rigging the Pottermore quiz (which, actually, isn’t all that easy to do, so props to her!) is totally comparable. The actress did mention that she “wouldn’t have been bummed with Ravenclaw,” but she’s definitely not the only fan who’s all “Gryffindor or bust.”

The question of Robbie’s Patronus, on the other hand, wasn’t so cut and dry. She seemed to think it might be a monkey, but didn’t exactly ~want~ her Patronus to be a monkey.

“My spirit animal is a monkey. Because I have really long arms and I like being up high. I feel much more comfortable either up in a tree, or underwater. That’s where I feel the most zen. But I don’t want my Patronus to be a monkey! Even though that’s totally what it is.”

Not a hedgehog?! Margot, I am disappointed.

All in all, Robbie seems to have a pretty solid handle on the ins and outs of this whole wizard thing. Maybe we’ll see her, wand in hand, in some future Potter spin-off, adaptation, or reboot? Pretty please?
