Post J.K.Rowling talks book 7: 2 unintended deaths & 1 reprieve (updated)

J.K.Rowling was today interviewed on the Richard and Judy show. Amongst other things she talked about book 7 - stating that it is NOT yet finished but she has added two more deaths she didn't originally plan.


J.K.Rowling interview highlights:


- Book 7 is NOT finished but she is well into it

- The final chapter for book 7 has changed slightly – 2 more people have died than she originally planned and 1 other person has got a reprieve

- Jo first wrote the final chapter in 1990

- Says she loved teaching teens and draws on memories of them and her own experiences for Harry and his friends

- Judy is a Hr/R and H/G shipper – she wants them to wed!

- She’s never been tempted to kill Harry off before book 7 – however she can understand the mentality behind killing a main character so no-one else can write sequels

- She won’t say whether Harry lives or dies

- The essential premise for Potter was a boy wizard who didn’t know he was a wizard

- She has regretted writing some parts where she may have boxed herself in, earlier in the series

- For the first 3 books she was in total denial about her and the series’ fame – “like a rabbit caught in headlights” – the freakiest thing is seeing casual references to HP in press – she was shocked when bludgers were referenced in a Wimbeldon write-up featuring Venus Williams

- Says she is wealthy but many figures are falsely reported

- Sudden fame did make her clam up

- Jessica, her daughter, has adapted well – kids have tried getting book titles out of her before

- Dating wasn't tricky because of fame but because she was a single mother

- Death became such a big theme in the books after her own mother died

- Jo admires the authors who go out on top while people still want more

- She’s written half of another children’s book for younger kids – it’s a much smaller book

- Jo says Ron is generally more popular than Harry -- remembers seeing an unofficial poll on a fansite reflecting this

- If she came across a boggart it'd be similar to Mrs Weasley's where she saw her children dead

- She thinks the person who she based Lockhart on probably doesn't realise she wasn't being nice in basing a character on him

- She made up the rules for Quidditch in about half an hour -- after having an argument with an ex-boyfriend -- this is where she thinks she got bludgers from



UPDATE: An audio of the interview can be downloaded from here courtesy of The Leaky Cauldron. A video and screencaps can be viewed here (right click, save as target..) and here courtesy of Mugglenet.

Two more people at least - the significant thing about these 2 is that she didn't originally intend for them to die.

She was looking gorgeous..and very friendly. It was almost a Jo special on the programme, she took up the majority of the time. Not that I'm complaining

Ahhh! Don't kill Ron or Hermione! So Ron is more popular than Harry at least at one site? I like the sound of that but Harry is great too.

Wow. So that means so far, there are 3 deaths in book 7 right?

That's cause Ron is better than Harry.

2 more deaths than planned.. Someone got a bit carried away then.. I wonder who they are though.

Uh oh...If she has two more deaths than originally planned. that means she was killing off other people as well. This gives a greater chance for her to kill off awesome characters. I hope most of the people who die aren't well known. If they're all main characters...well...

The news about the deaths and the reprieve of course are killing me too! Expected, of course, but to hear from JKR's own mouth. And two - unexpected people, it's just.


This really intrigues me though:

Quote:
- She has regretted writing some parts where she may have boxed herself in, earlier in the series
I'm sure all authors have things they would have done differently in retrospect. I can't help but be curious what JKR is referring to in her own work. I hope that once the series is done, that she can elaborate on this. I'd really love to know what she may have done or how she was 'boxed in'.
