J.K. Rowling talks Cornelius Fudge in new interview
 
A new interview with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has appeared in a Spanish magazine, where she talks about links between the Wizarding World and Real Life.

Jo admits that Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, was based on Neville Chamberlain, a Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during the early years of World War II. She also speaks about a rumour concerning her ex-husband, which claimed that he was the basis of a certain character in the books. J.K. denies this again, saying that he led to one of the most beautiful things which happened in her life, her daughter Jessica.


A brief outline (translated) of what is in the magazine can be seen below.

Quote:


About the relationship between September-11 and Harry Potter, Rowling denied any influence and recognizes who was the true inspiration for the Minister Cornelius Fudge: "My model of the world after Voldemort's return was, directly, the government of Neville Chamberlain in Great Britain during the Second World War, when he tried to minimize the menace of the Nazi regime for political convenience."

She also spoke about her two marriages: "I had decided not to marry again. In seven years I didn't meet anyone who I wanted to be with. And I remember that I thought: I have a daughter who I adore, I have success, and in the deep, I am happy. My sister introduced us and I thought he was a very solid person. He's an excellent doctor in his profession, and he works in a world that is far away from mine. What I most adore about him is that Neil knows more people that want to know if he can help them, without having to ask who he is married to."

She didn't avoid talking about her first husband, Jorge Arantes, who was married to her near two years: "None of the characters of my books is my ex. Whatever happened in and out of marriage, the truth is that my ex-husband has contributed in a fifty percent to one of the most beautiful things that has happened in my life, which is my eldest daughter. So, I'd never have mortified him in a fairy tale. He's her father."

The full interview can be read in this week's weekly edition of XLSemanal, which is included as a supplement in more than 20 Spanish newspapers.

God... Knowing what her ex-husband did to her, I'd never expect her to be so... nice to him O.O Wow. Jo really is something :D

I had always known Fudge was modeled after Chamberlain. People died while Fudge was pretending everything was fine, people died when Chamberlain signed away part of Czechoslovakia to Hitler with his whole "Peace in our time" Munich Agreement *grrrrrrrr*
