Fan Focus: Jackellyn – March 9, 2014

23-year-old Slytherin Jackellyn from Orlando, FL, USA


How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

Started reading the books when I was in middle school for AR points (point system for reading books at my school). Reading the books took me to that world and I LOVED IT. Then the movies started coming out, I would go at midnight and (sometimes) dress up. It really all started with required reading but after I left middle school I was reading them for me.

If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?

If I could have one prop from the set I would choose Hermione’s time turner. Mostly because it shows her determination to be the best she could be and challenging herself by taking more courses than possible! Also because Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite of the series.

What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?

I would see myself surrounded by the people I love, similar to Harry. Everything else is extra (like a house, children, etc).

Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in seven words or less.

Have courage, be clever, loyal with ambition.
