J.K. Rowling Reveals New Information About Draco Malfoy, Says She's 'Unnerved' By Girls Who Fall For Him

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling just revealed some brand new back story for the villainous Draco Malfoy in her 12 Days of Christmas Pottermore series.

“Draco remains a person of dubious morality in the seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character (although I do not discount the appeal of Tom Felton, who plays Draco brilliantly in the films, and ironically, is about the nicest person you could meet),” J.K. wrote on Pottermore, after fans answered a riddle to unlock the text. “Draco has all the glamour of the anti-hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people. All of this left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice and that no, he and Harry were not destined to end up best friends.”

“I pity Draco. Being raised by the Malfoys would be a very damaging experience, and Draco undergoes dreadful trials as a direct result of his family’s misguided principles,” J.K. adds.

J.K. Rowling Reveals There Are LGBT Students at Hogwarts

J.K. Rowling has been revealing all sorts of behind-the-scenes information about her hit book series “Harry Potter” – and now she’s saying there have been LGBT students at Hogwarts!

“do you think there are a lot of LGBT students in modern age Hogwarts? I like to imagine they formed an LGBT club it’s safe to assume that Hogwarts had a variety of people and I like to think it’s a safe place for LGBT students” one fan asked the famous author on Twitter.

J.K. had a perfect response, where she said “But of course” and included an inspiring poster that reads, “If Harry Potter taught us anything it’s that no one should live in a closet.” During that same Twitter chat, J.K. also revealed there was a Jewish wizard at Hogwarts.

JK Rowling Regrets This 'Harry Potter' Character's Death

JK Rowling has opened up to reveal that she regrets killing off a minor character in her book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

“I originally planned Florean to be the conduit for clues that I needed to give Harry during his quest for the Hallows, which is why I established an acquaintance fairly early on,” the author said on her Pottermore website about the owner of the Diagon Alley ice cream parlor. “The problem was that when I came to write the key parts of Deathly Hallows I decided that Phineas Nigellus Black was a much more satisfactory means of conveying clues.”

“I seemed to have him kidnapped and killed for no good reason. He is not the first wizard whom Voldemort murdered because he knew too much (or too little), but he is the only one I feel guilty about, because it was all my fault,” she added.

J.K. Rowling Will Write a Movie Screenplay for First Time!

J.K. Rowling is set to write a screenplay for the first time ever for her upcoming project Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them!

The new franchise, a spinoff of the massive hit Harry Potter series, will be at least a trilogy with films releasing in 2016, 2018, 2020, and possibly beyond.

Jo has a vision for this extension of the franchise, and for the first time, she is writing the script for what she believes is at least a trilogy,” Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said at Time Warner’s investors conference (via the Los Angeles Times).

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is about a character named Newt Scamander, who was a Hufflepuff hero that studied magical creatures and wrote a fictional textbook that bears the franchise’s name.

J.K. Rowling Reveals Answer to Her 'Harry Potter' Riddle!

J.K. Rowling has revealed the answer to the Harry Potter themed riddle she posed on her Twitter account this week – and unfortunately we don’t have more books in the series coming our way.

Many fans thought the anagram she posted would lead to new details on the Harry Potter series. Some even scrambled the letters into this: “Harry returns! Wont say any details now! A week off! No comment.”

Well here is the correct solution: “Newt Scamander only meant to stay in New York for a few hours…” It refers to the main character in the spinoff series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will be getting a movie trilogy soon.
