A new documentary from Warner Bros. Films, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, explores the importance of playing the iconic wizard.
The doc features behind-the-scenes footage from the production and is available on DVD and Blu-ray this week.
Harry Potter fans will find some very interesting insights into the making of the film, including the role of J.K. Rowling, who plays the titular character in the film.
“I think people really have a fascination with that character, and I think the fans have a great respect for her,” J. K. Rowling said during the production of the documentary.
“She is so complex and interesting, and it’s such a powerful and powerful character.
She’s a bit of a complicated character.”
Rowling also revealed a bit about the writing process on the film and how it was challenging to balance all of the different characters she would have had to play.
“The character of the Death Eater was so powerful, and she was so iconic and so well-known, and people were going, ‘Oh, I’ll be the Death Eaters!’
But then, suddenly, she’s a woman.
And so I felt really lucky to be able to write it and write a film like that,” Rowling said.
“It was very difficult, because she is the only female character that is in the book.
So it’s really hard to balance.”
She went on to say that it was important for her to portray the characters in a way that was respectful to her characters.
“When you are writing about people, you’re writing about their lives.
It’s so important to give them their due, and they are not only my characters, they are the characters that I love writing about, and so to do that and to do it in a very respectful way was very rewarding,” Rowling added.
