Fan Focus: Astrid – May 10, 2015
Age 10 – Cornwall, England
How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
My sister got my other sister the Harry Potter [film] box set for Christmas. One day I was sitting in our room when suddenly she walked in and put on […] Philosopher’s Stone. About 10 minutes [sic] in, I was staring at the screen with joy. It was like I was there, sitting next to Harry, Ron and Hermione. Ever since that day, I’ve been a hardcore Harry Potter fan!
What Potter fandom memory would you keep in your Pensieve?
I’d keep the memory of when I went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. I remember that I was so excited [sic] I COULD NOT sit or stand still for more than 10 seconds. For my birthday, I got a personalized poster of when I went there. I’m looking at it right now as I type. It was the best thing that ever happened to me!
What would your Patronus be and why?
My [P]atronus would be a [d]olphin because I’m friendly and joyful. I[‘]m quite intelligent and always help others, like a dolphin! (I do get in a bit of a stress sometimes, though!)
If you could have one prop from the set of the films, which would it be?
The Nimbus 2000.
