People should also be forewarned that this video cuts out unexpectedly just as JKR is about to answer a really interesting question. Does anybody know whether the whole interview is available anywhere?

Yes, an article mentioned that she said "she mentioned Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, then confided she also dreams of more personal territory, the old school of Harry and friends.

“I do still walk in and out of Hogwarts,” she said." TimesLive

Aaaah! Dammit, that’s an incredible question at the end. Anyway another wonderful interview. I’m soaking up all of these Jo appearences before she goes back in to the obscurity of Edinburgh and we have to wait another 5 years until she returns to talk at length. Thanks HProx for the clues as to what she said

I was there! She answered the last question saying she’d love to steal Mr. Darcy away from Elizabeth, because who wouldn’t? She also did say that Hogwarts was the easy answer for this question, but she never really left.

It was very interesting watching the rapport between these two writers because they work at the same craft. The interviewer was able to appreciate the technical skills of the storyteller and reveal aspects of the whole writing process of which the average consumer is unaware. I was delighted that Jo seemed to be having a really positive experience during this whole discussion.

I wouldn’t (want to steal Darcy from Elizabeth) :) FullofWrackspurts. You and Rowling can share him … I would prefer Mr Rochester or Snape …

I’m so excited about watching this as if she were a relative or something – I feel very connected to her!
