Fan Focus: Olivia – April 27, 2014

12-year-old Hufflepuff Olivia from Boston, USA

How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

When I was 7, I barely read any books. My parents begged me to read the popular books that other kids my age read, such as the Narnia series, but I just didn’t get into them. One day, my mum bought me Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone. I forgot about it, until one day I picked it up and started reading it. I was so in love with it, I finished it 2 hours. I read the whole HP series within 1 month. To this day, I am an avid reader and an extreme Harry Potter fan.

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

Definitely the Mirror Of Erised! Just think how cool it would be to have the real life-sized prop in your room, and although you won’t see what your heart desires, you can still see your reflection in the actual prop Daniel Radcliffe touched, which is still pretty cool!

What would your patronus be and why?

My patronus would be a puppy. I don’t know why, but puppies bring me so much happiness and joy (this sounds extremely corny), so my patronus would be a puppy.

What was your reaction to the news about Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them?

I nearly passed out from excitement. I got so sad when I finished the whole series, so I re-read and re-watched it all, and it got me so pumped to know that there was a new movie coming out from the world of Harry Potter!
