Don’t check this out if you’re still reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
J.K. Rowling did a two-part interview with the Today show this Thursday and Friday, and Entertainment Weekly’s PopWatch blog has helpfully summarized her answers to some “burning questions” about things she didn’t mention in 759 pages. On Thursday, she answered:
- What jobs do our heroes have “19 years later?”
- Now that we know Snape’s motivation, how does that change things?
- What character was she unable to kill off, despite her original plans to do so? (This one makes sense if you think back to OotP.)
Thanks to MojoMom for linking to a supplemental item on MSNBC.com, tied to the Today appearance, that gives even more details about what happened with our favorites during the period leading up to the Epilogue – which was a lot longer as Rowling originally wrote it.
