Fan Focus: Camila – November 16, 2014
How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I was nine years old when I first read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The book was a gift from a very special friend ([whom] unfortunately I don’t see anymore. But from ages 9 to 13 I read the first five books in Spanish [since] that’s my first language. I was addicted. When Book 6 came out, it first came out in English. I didn’t want to wait for the translation, so I bought it and read it using a dictionary for the words I didn’t know. That’s actually how I learned English! 🙂
What would your Patronus be and why?
My [P]atronus would be a horse. They are fast, strong, and loyal animals; I’ve been taking horse-riding classes since I was 11, and I love them. I always feel so safe with a horse by my side.
What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?
I would see myself graduating from [college] and moving overseas. But there’s also the chance I might see myself reading a Harry Potter prequel…
If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?
It would be the Time-Turner, and I’d wear it everywhere.
