Potter Profile - Stephanie
September 25, 2011
First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
When I was 8, I was in the car and my dad showed me the Sorcerers Stone
book and said I should read it along with the audiobook he had. I started
reading the book with the CD and I loved it and I couldnt stop reading and I
started loving Harry Potter. I have read the whole series over 10 times and I still
cant stop. I love Harry Potter and now Im currently in Pottermore and cant wait
to read all that JK Rowling wrote about the series.
Deathly Hallows Part Two!! Loved it? Hated it? Thoughts?
I loved Part Two. It was amazing and intense. I was disappointed though at
the ending when Harry didnt fix his phoenix wand with the Elder wand like in
the book. But other than that, I thought it was excellent. I really liked the part
when Greyback killed Lavender, not because Lavender died, but because it was
a character that died that I didnt know died from reading the book. I also loved
the battle between Bellatrix and Molly, I was looking forward to Mrs. Weasleys
line NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH! so I was glad it was in there.
What were your favorite scenes that were straight from the book?
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, when Lord Voldemort returns was
amazing and my favorite because the details in the book on what happened
were exactly like the movie and it was amazing to see it and when I read the
book over again, I can picture what it actually looks like when Im reading it. For
Deathly Hallows, my favorite scene from the book was back in the forest again,
when Harrys parents came back with the Resurrection Stone.
What scenes that were changed did you liked? Disliked?
I didnt like when Voldemort dies. In the book it says Voldemort died by his own
rebounding curse and I thought to myself Wow that sounds really cool I cant
wait to see that happen in the movie. Instead of that, he just crumbled and fell
to his knees. I was disappointed that it wasnt such a dramatic scene than what
it couldve been if followed by the book. I wished it would have happened in the
Great Hall as well with everybody around them in a circle.
The WB says they are pushing hard for DH:P2 at The Oscars this year! What do you think Potter deserves to be nominated for, and what do you hope it would win?
I would like Harry Potter to be nominated for everything but I think Alan
Rickman should win for best supporting actor because the Prince Tale in Harry
Potter part 2 was unbelievable and right from the book. Also I think David Yates
should win for best director because he did a great job for the last 4 movies but
part two was the best, and Rupert Grint for best actor because he was amazing
in all of the films.
Now that all eight films are out, how to feel about the movie series as a whole? Favorite? Least favorite?
The whole movie series will always be my favorite. Watching movie one all the
way up to Deathly Hallows part two is an amazing journey because you see them
grow up over the years and is intense with Cedric dying in movie four and Sirius
dying in Order of the Phoenix. Harry Potter was and always will be my favorite
movie series. Like every other Harry Potter fan, Im sad that the series is done
but it cant go on forever and Im just glad it got to eight films.
Do you have anything else you'd like to add? Maybe a theory you still believe to be true, a shout-out, praise for yours truly?
I think Snape actually had some respect for James Potter but was too jealous of
him to show it because James was a quidditch player, he was popular, and liked
Lily. That made Snape jealous of James. If James didnt like Lily and was nicer to
Snape, I think Snape and James couldve been friends.
