One thing the press does not like about author JK Rowling is that she does all she can to avoid them. Think of the surprise, however, when Rowling agreed to do Sixty Minutes.
What could she possibly talk about? Harry Potter of course!
JK Rowling Talks Harry Potter
Any fan of the Harry Potter books or films should get a kick out of the 60 Minutes special featuring JK Rowling as she discusses everything Potter.
In order to fill the time, JK Rowling explains Hogwarts, life before Potter, the wizard sport known as Quidditch, the death of Potter's parents, how she names the characters in the books and so much more.
Does she bother to hint who the characters are that shall meet their end in the seventh book? No, no, this is Rowling we are talking about.
As an added kick, she shows how she sets up plot/chapter guides that help guide her through the story and fit in all the necessary information. Remember, there are many small details that Rowling mentions that turn out to be very important later on. From what book does she show guides from? Book seven!
Check out the entire 60 Minutes interview with JK Rowling by going to Yahoo! News.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opens to theatres on July 13th, 2007.
We are still hoping for a Book VII release on 7-7-7.
