Fan of the Week: Julie – June 2, 2003

FOTW

JULIE Age 14 – Tennessee, USA   Well, my love for Harry Potter is truly…uh…unique. Not everyone has their entire room covered (completely) with posters, newspaper articles and pictures of every character from the movies and books under the sun. But I do. My friends call me “the Harry Potter geek”, and I don’t deny it. I know the books practically inside out, backwards and forwards…you get the point. My friends and family know what ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Kirbee – May 18, 2003

FOTW

KIRBEE Age 15 – Kansas, USA    used to be a Potter-hater. When Goblet of Fire came out, it was on the ten o’clock news, and they showed kids in line even then, waiting for it to be released. I laughed and called them morons and whatnot, and then I read the books, and my opinion completely changed. Now, I love the books, and as soon as I get off of work on June 21st, ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Libby – April 27, 2003

FOTW

LIBBY Age 14 –  Queensland, Australia   t’s amazing how J.K Rowling can write books about teenagers and make them believable. Also, something that has inspired so many people to create songs, fanfictions, and artwork of their own has to be truly special. One of the great things about the Harry Potter books is that they have someone for everyone to relate to. There’s Ron for the likeable kids overshadowed by friends or family, Hermione ...

Fan of the Week: June – March 16, 2003

FOTW

JUNE Age 50 – New Brunswick, Canada     I love Harry Potter. Some people love chocolate. I love Harry and I’d choose him over chocolate any day! Even I can’t believe how much I love Harry. I feel a simple, pure pleasure reading or watching any of the stories. It’s an intense enjoyment. I become deeply involved in the adventure, tuning out the world around me. I think Harry is a wonderful character. I ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Gausia – March 2, 2003

FOTW

GAUSIA Age 19 – Ohio, USA How and when did you get in to Harry Potter? I got into Harry Potter my Freshman year in high school (about 4 years ago). My mom was reading the book to my younger brother and it seemed interesting, so I casually picked the book up and started reading, and I just couldn’t stop! I stayed up all night and finished the book and the next day ran to ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Brittany – February 23, 2003

FOTW

BRITTANY Age 14 – Illinois, USA   Harry Potter is my past, present, and future. No, but really, I love Harry Potter. And no, I’m not just talking about the orphan wizarding boy, but his whole world and everything in it (even You-Know-Who). I think that it’s the pure sense of unreality and playfulness, as well as sorrow and suspense that draws people to Harry. You can open one of the books and be whisked ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Laci – February 9, 2003

FOTW

LACI Age 14 – California, USA   Well, I always have and always will love Harry Potter. I think that J.K. Rowling is a genius. Her books are so profound and inspiring. When I first found out they were making the Harry Potter movie series, I vowed that I wouldn’t see it. But the year came that it was released, and I couldn’t resist myself. I saw it at midnight the day it opened. I ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Mary – February 2, 2003

FOTW

MARY Age 31 – Ohio, USA   I will be the oldest person so far lucky enough to be profiled, and at 31 years old, I consider this quite an honor. I think about Harry, Ron, and Hermione throughout the day at work, wanting to go home and review the DVD, picking out my favorite scenes. Harry at the Mirror of Erised is a favorite, and also the ending under the castle with Quirrell. Harry ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Amy – January 19, 2003

FOTW

AMY Age 16 – Australia   My room is just a total HP haven full of all my stuff. It’s COVERED in posters, and I always sleep with the curtains down around my four-poster bed. I wish so much that I could go to England. I’d love to play Cho, Madam Rosmerta, or Parvati Patil, and am sending in a big package to the casting directors for the third movie. At school people call me ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Madison – Dec 11, 2002

FOTW

MADISON Age 11 – Ontario, Canada   This week’s Potter Profile is the eleven-year-old Madison from Ontario, Canada. As big of a fan as she is, which you will soon find out, the questions have been answered by her sometimes through her mother. As Madison is a kind special needs kid who unfortunately can’t type herself, her mother volunteered to answer them through her. Part of the questions will still be from Madison, though, so ...
