While fans adore Triss on the show, Anna's character in Harry Potter had a slightly different reception. In the final three films, Half Blood Prince and The Deathly Hallows part I and II, Anna plays Romilda Vane, a classmate of Harry, Ron and Hermione's who has a crush on Harry, and spikes a box of chocolates with love potion, which Ron accidentally eats.

Speaking about Anna's appearance in the series, one person wrote: "I'm in love with Romilda Vane... *cough* Triss!!" Another person added: "Just found out that the actress of Triss in #TheWitcher was also Romilda Vane in Harry Potter." A third person tweeted: "The moment when I realised Triss is Romilda Vane and why I kept looking at her like this chick is familiar."
