J.K. Rowling Reveals a Cool New Tidbit About a 'Harry Potter' Character - Watch Now!

JK Rowling has revealed a cool new tidbit about Celestina Warbeck – a character referenced only a few times in her “Harry Potter” book series.

The character is a singer who is now featured with her own show at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios.

“Although we never lay eyes on Celestina during the whole seven volumes of the Potter books, I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style,” JK wrote on Pottermore. When talking about the singer’s popularity within the books, she added that “Three devoted fans were involved in a nasty three-broom pile up over Liverpool while trying to reach the last night of her Flighty Aphrodite tour, and her tickets often appear on the black market at vastly inflated prices (one reason why Molly Weasley has never yet seen her favourite singer live).”

Harry Potter's Fenrir Greyback Found Dead After Hiking in Death Valley

Harry Potter actor Dave Legeno, who is known as werewolf Fenrir Greyback, has died at age 50 while hiking in Death Valley, Calif., TMZ reports.

Apparently, Dave‘s body was found by a pair of hikers on Sunday in an area so remote that a CHP helicopter had to be called in to remove it.

The Inyo County Sheriff’s Department says that Dave “died of heat related issues … and may have been dead for 3-4 days before his body was discovered.”

Dave also appeared in Snow White and the Huntsman and Titanic, among many other things.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
