Brace yourselves, Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling has revealed the one character who she regrets killing off in the series. A lot of characters didn’t make it out alive, so who would J.K. bring back if she could?
Over the course of the Harry Potter series, we lost Dumbledore, Snape, Fred Weasley, Dobby and countless others. Seven years after the last book was released, author J.K. Rowling is finally coming forward about the character she feels the most guilty about killing off. Take your guesses now, guys.
The character that J.K. regrets writing of the most is…
Yes, really. Not Dumbledore, not Snape, not Sirius Black, or poor Dobby.
“I seemed to have him kidnapped and killed for no good reason,” J.K. wrote on Pottermore. “He is not the first wizard whom Voldemort murdered because he knew too much (or too little), but he is the only one I feel guilty about, because it was all my fault.”
For those of you who don’t really remember Florean — which is most of us — the wizard was a minor character who was first introduced in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Florean only made one onscreen appearance in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. If J.K. felt really bad about killing off Florean, she could have helped feature him more in the movies. But alas, that was not the case.
To be honest, she needs to reevaluate her thinking on this.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Florean Fortescue is the character that J.K. should feel about killing off? Let us know!
