From left to right: Fiona Shaw as Aunt Petunia, Harry Melling as Dudley, and Richard Griffiths as Uncle Vernon in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The Dursley family are Harry Potter’s last living relatives.
To ensure Harry’s safety, Albus Dumbledore placed him in the Dursleys’ care when he was a baby. The Dursleys live at Number 4, Privet Drive, Little Whinging in Surrey, England. Vernon is described as a big, beefy man, the literal human embodiment of a walrus, with hardly any neck, and a large moustache. He is very much the head of his family, laying down most of the rules for Harry and doing most of the threatening, as well as spoiling Dudley. Uncle Vernon and his wife have grudgingly raised Harry from an early age. When the Dursleys decide to leave Privet Drive to go into hiding, Vernon nearly shakes Harry’s hand good-bye, though he ultimately cannot bring himself to do it.
In the film version, he leaves without even a word to Harry although a deleted scene showing Dudley and Harry’s reconciliation shows him saying “this is farewell”. Vernon is portrayed by Richard Griffiths in the film series. Petunia Dursley is Harry’s maternal aunt, Lily Potter’s older sister, Vernon’s wife, Dudley’s mother, and Marge’s sister-in-law. She is described as a bony woman with blonde hair that she passed down to her son, a “rather horsey” face and a very long neck, and spends most of her time spying on her neighbours. Her eyes are large and pale, quite unlike Lily’s. Her entire family, except Lily, is made up of Muggles. Petunia has more knowledge of the wizarding world than she is initially willing to admit.
After the Dementors attack Harry and Dudley, Petunia states that she knows Dementors guard the wizard prison, Azkaban. When Harry and the rest of her family look at her strangely, she explains that she heard “that awful boy” telling Lily about them years ago. Actress Fiona Shaw portrays Petunia in the films, with Ariella Paradise playing her as a child. Dudley Dursley is the only child of Vernon and Petunia, Marge’s only nephew and Harry’s only cousin.
