In the News
Fantastic Leaky staff, thanks and well done!! Amazing to get it posted so quickly and a genuinely good interview and programme.
Note there are links to some extra footage on the show’s website at
Oprah is not my favorite interviewer. She got too whiny and sappy about the “travails of being rich.” But that’s not JKR’s fault. I hope she does write more HP books someday. That would be great.
Oh Jo ,i wish you would write at least one more book and put us out of our misery.Your honesty is so refreshing.x
wonderful interview! love the fact that Jo talked so much more than Oprah,which is not always the case with Oprah. It feels so great to hear from her again. and it just feels like it isn’t over. I’m 20 now, and I really hope,that in 10 years or so, Jo announces new HP journey. I’d probably be the happiest 30-year-old on the planet. sadly,we didn’t find out about her upcoming books. nor did Oprah mentioned any fan stories. and I’m sure she received about 100 000 emails. thank you Jo,I really hope I’ll meet you someday. it must be the best feeling in the world,meeting your hero.
It was a really good interview. I was really hoping for some news on what she’s writing now and how it’s coming along. She did mention something about an encyclopedia, a children’s book, and a mystery a few years ago. I’m guessing she might publish the last 2 under a pen name if she finished them, but I know we all would like to know about the HP encyclopedia.
Almost daily, I ask myself, what would Harry Potter do. After the interview, I realize I am really asking what would J.K. Rowling do. She has such wisdom, courage and integrity. Can’t decide on a favorite bit. It was all good.
@akcorr — Thank you, thank you, thank you for uploading! For some reason, I couldn’t “get” the entire interview from the Leaky — it kept stopping at +/-12 minutes, complete with the “share” and “replay” buttons.
And it was a wonderful interview. Oprah interrupted too much, but JKR still got her words out. Much respect for JKR.
For someone who doesn’t feel at ease with public speaking, Jo always does a fabulous job! Great interview!
