Fan Focus: Margo – December 21, 2014
How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
My parents first read me Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone at the age of 3, I believe, and I was hooked! I started reading them myself at the age of 7 and never stopped. The reason I became a Harry Potter fan was the fact that the world JK Rowling created was a place I could be myself and no one else. (I’m going to try [to] explain the rest, but English is my third language. I’m Dutch) It’s a world so similar to ours but still so magical. I love the magical creatures, etc!
What would your Patronus be and why?
A cat, I think. I’m a big cat lover, and I know you don’t get to choose your Patronus, but I’m very similar to a cat when it comes to behavior. I’m just fine on my own and don’t need (a lot of ) people around me to feel just fine. But after reading Warrior Cats, I know a cat is more than an animal that’s always on [its] own.
If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?
Hard one! I would say everything but if I had to choose . . . probably the pair of glasses Richard Harris (RIP) wore in the first movie.
Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in seven words or less.
My second family.
