Extreme Rumor: J.K. Rowling quotes from Book 7 on Italian TV
WIZARD NEWS EXCLUSIVE
by Dave Haber, with info from Petrea Mitchell
The following quote was posted to the alt.fan.harry-potter newsgroup. The poster later claimed this was transcribed from an appearance by J. K. Rowling on the program "L'Italia sul 2" on the Italian TV network RAI 2. It reportedly is J.K. reading a passage from the unreleased Harry Potter Book 7:
Harry was absolutely amazed. His scar was beaming again with that strange colourful rainbow, but his attention was not on that. He was looking directly into the eyes of Godric Gryffindor.
"Harry", said Godric carefully, "listen to me. I'm going to tell you something crucial for your future and Voldemort's. Something that Dumbledore had to say to you if he were... well, you know".
Then, he breathed deeply and noisy, and said:
"In fact, you are my..."
Debate is now raging among Potter fans as to whether or not this quote was actually made by J.K. Rowling. The existence of the TV program has been confirmed, but a past schedule confirming J.K. being on it has not yet been documented.
Please remember we are classifying this as an Extreme Rumor, and should be considered to be false until we hear otherwise. Please let us know by sending us some feedback if you have any further details about this quote or J.K.'s appearance on the Italian TV show.
