Fan Focus: Taylor – August 30, 2015


Age 22 – Thomasville, GA

How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

I became a Harry Potter fan after I read the first book. At the time, I was only in the fifth grade, so I didn’t quite get it until I saw the movie in 2001. But once I figured out certain things (like pronouncing Hermione’s name right), there was no stopping me. I quickly located the second book and so on and so forth.

What Potter fandom memory would you keep in your Pensieve?

My fandom memory would have to be when I won a trip to Universal in 2014. I actually saw it on MuggleNet’s twitter account and just decided to enter it. The idea of me and 100 other Potter fans experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Diagon Alley before anyone else was the most magical thing ever. It didn’t hurt that we met some of the cast too.

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

It is a loving, caring, wonderful family.

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

Duh. Hermione’s Time-Turner!
