Here’s What the “Harry Potter” Kids Are Up to Today, According to J.K. Rowling
If you were listening this morning, I told you that J.K. Rowling wrote an update on what Harry Potter and his friends are doing as adults. Warning, there may be some spoilers.
J.K. Rowling wrote an update on what Harry Potter and his friends are doing now on her PotterMore website. She wrote it in the form of a newspaper article by gossip columnist Rita Skeeter, who's a character in the books.
As the story goes, Rita is covering the Quidditch World Cup, and it turns out that Harry and his friends are together at this year's event. Here's what she has to say:
Harry works for the Ministry of Magic as an "auror" . . . which is someone who fights against dark magic and evil witches and wizards. He still wears his round glasses, but some "threads of silver" are creeping into his hair.
Harry also has a "nasty cut over his right cheekbone" . . . but nobody will say how he got it.
Harry is still married to Ron Weasley's sister Ginny, who is a reporter covering the Quidditch World Cup.
As for Ron, he worked with Harry at the Ministry for a few years, but then left to help run his brother George's joke shop Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. And his, quote, "famous ginger hair appears to be thinning slightly."
He and Hermione are still married, and she's the Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry.
Meanwhile, Neville Longbottom is a popular Herbology teacher at Hogwarts. You know Neville; he was the goofy kid that turned out being the hottest guy in the cast.
You have to be a member of the PotterMore website to read the article there. It's free to sign up, and here's a link to PotterMore.
After I shared some of these insights, my wife; a die-hard Harry Potter fan, said that I would be getting a 'Howler', as punishment for giving out spoilers over the air. I'm not sure what that is, but I'm looking forward to it!
