"Potter" Career

"Potter" Career

In 2000, Warner Bros. came to Steve with the idea to adapt the first Harry Potter book into a film. J.K. Rowling was initially very reluctant to have an American write the screenplay. However, he would win her over, and would write the screenplays for all but the fifth movie.

J.K. Rowling said:

Steve turned to me while food was being ordered and said quietly, ‘You know who my favorite character is?’ I looked at him, red hair included, and thought: You’re going to say Ron. Please, please don’t say Ron – Ron’s so easy to love! And he said: ‘Hermione.’ At which point, under my standoffish, mistrusting exterior, I just melted. Because if he got Hermione, he got the books. He also, to a large extent, got me.
