Question about English (UK)

What does Who was it wanting his autograph? mean?

This sentence is from Harry Potter's film. Do you think why Hermione use the pronoun 'it' here?
I think it sounds much better to have 'it' left out from that.

The related script here:
Hermione : Victor's gone to get drinks. Would you care to join us?
Ron : No, we would not care to join you and *Victor*.
Hermione : What's got your wand in a knot?
Ron : He's from Durmstrang! You're fraternizing with the enemy!
Hermione : The enemy? Who was it wanting his autograph? Besides the whole point of the tournament is international magical cooperation. To make friends!
Ron : I think he's got a bit more than friendship on his mind. He's using you.
