In celebration of the 15-year anniversary of the release of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “Good Morning America” debuted a video interview with author J.K. Rowling wherein she talks about her most-missed character — Albus Dumbledore.
“If I could choose to introduce anyone in the world to Dumbledore for a good, long chat — it’s a difficult question and I have mulled it over at length. I have considered world leaders, who may benefit from some of his calm wisdom,” says Rowling. “But I finally decided there’s really only one person that should meet Dumbledore and that’s me. Because out of any other characters in the Harry Potter series, he’s the one I miss the most.”
“I always say that I feel like I wrote Dumbledore from the back of my head. Sometimes he said things and told Harry things that I only knew I knew or believed when I saw that I had written them down in the voice of Dumbledore,” Rowling continues. “He was the character that was hardest to leave, for me, and he’s the person if I could have anyone come back to me, physically, and sit and talk to me, it would be Dumbledore.”
“I’m afraid I’m going to be very selfish — if anybody gets a shot, it’s me,” laughs Rowling.
She does not make any mention of more Harry Potter books, but we’ll never stop hoping. Never give up hope, Potter fans!
