Fan of the Week: Olivia – November 30, 2014
Age 13 – Minnesota, USA
How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
Truth be told, I wasn’t even born when the first movie came out! When I was 6, though, my dad persuaded me to watch the movies with him. I thought that it was a horror movie series, so I covered my eyes through the first 15 minutes. But the sound of owls (my favorite animal) wrenched my hands from my face and glued my eyes to the screen. I have loved Harry Potter ever since! My walls are filled with Potter [p]osters, and my shelves are covered with merchandise (and occasionally a picture) Go HP!
What would your Patronus be and why?
I would like to think that it would be something brave like a wolf or lion, but honestly speaking, it would probably be more like a monkey because I am energetic and just a tad goofy! (Even though I WAS put into Slytherin, but as Slughorn said, don’t use that against me.)
If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?
I would LOVE to have the whole Hogwarts library, but I can only pick one, so having Harry’s [G]olden [S]nitch would be cool too! It would be awesome to play around with as it flew around my house, and it would be like having my own little pet!
What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?
If I looked into the Mirror of Erised, I think I would see myself at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with all of my Potterhead friends. That would truly be, in my opinion, THE BEST THING EVER!
