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).”

JK Rowling: Harry & Hermoine Should've End Up Together!

J.K. Rowling has opened up about her smash hit “Harry Potter” book series and admits that Harry and Hermoine should have ended up together in the end!

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” Ms. Rowling shared in the new Wonderland mag issue. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

She added, “I know, I’m sorry. I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”

And it looks like Emma Watson agreed with her too: “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”

J.K. Rowling Writing Harry Potter Inspired Movie for Warner Bros.!

Great news Harry Potter fans: J.K. Rowling will be writing a movie that is based on the wizarding world she created in her seven part series!

“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” the 48-year-old author said in a statement. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”
