Obscure Harry Potter Facts

J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series has become one of the most successful franchises of all time. The books captured the imaginations of children and grown-ups alike and has sold millions of copies. Fans of the books were rewarded with great film adaptations for their loyalty and Hollywood stars have been created in the process, such as Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. Some die-hard fans of the series will have studied all the books and films and know lots of interesting trivia but here are some they might have missed…

David Thewlis played Remus Lupin in the film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. His then partner, Anna Friel campaigned for the role of Nymphadora Tonks, Lupins onscreen wife. However, the role went to relative unknown, Natalia Tina. Thewlis and Friel have since split up.

The Harry Potter books have been translated into sixty seven different languages.

The actress Shirley Henderson who played Moaning Myrtle (one of Hogwarts’ students) was 37 when she filmed some of her scenes, making her the oldest actor to portray any of the students at Hogwarts.


Never since Charlotte’s Web written by E.B White in 1952 had children’s books been included on the New York Best Seller list. The Harry Potter series was the first in almost 50 years.

The early years of Harry Potter did not look promising with several publishers rejecting the first manuscript saying that it was too long a book. It was then snapped up by Bloomsbury Publisher in 1996. Bloomsbury advised Rowling that she should use the name J.K. Rowling instead of Joanne Rowling in order to appeal to male readers. The K is not actually part of her name. Joanne had to steal the K from her Grandmother’s name which is Kathleen.

Both Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling share the 31st of July as their birthday.

In Greenville, Michigan a church called the Jesus Non-Denominational Church demonstrated publicly against the Harry Potter series because they believed that there was evil within the stories. The church demonstrated their beliefs by burning the book in 2003.

The title of the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone was changed in America to Harry Potter and the Sorcerers’ Stone because the publishers believed the title would be more exciting for American children.

The last instalment of the Harry Potter series as a movie is being presented to the world in 2 parts because the final book was so long. The Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows DVD will allow Potter fans to take home the first part of the finale.

Emma Watson’s Astrology / Numerology Combination – Aries Considerate Warrior

Article by Keith Abbott

As Hermione Granger in the ‘Harry Potter’ films, Emma Watson is one of the busiest teen stars in Hollywood. With the upcoming release of ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’, her sixth installment in the series, and two more ‘Harry Potter’ films in pre-production, Emma’s future is assured. Everyone knows what ace student wizard Hermione is like, but what about the young actress who plays her? Read on and learn what Emma Watson’s Astrology Numerology combination says about this fine young actress.

===> Astronumerology; Astrology and Numerology Combined

If I want to know what someone’s personality is like, and I haven’t had a chance to meet them, I will turn to Astronumerology. Using only their date of birth, I can determine someone’s Astrology sun sign, and their Numerology Life Path value. This combination will tell me which of over one hundred different personality types my subject matches. The Life Path number is calculated by summing all the digits of a person’s date of birth and then reducing the sum to a single digit from (1) to (9) using fadic addition. In the case of Emma Watson, who was born on April 15th, 1990, I know that her Astrology sun sign is Aries, and her Life Path number is (2).

===> Aries (2) – The Considerate Warrior

People who are born with this combination always respond to passionate causes. They will try to save the world or rescue someone in distress all in a days work. These souls are accomplishers and will win awards and achievements almost effortlessly. Aries Twos have a strict code of ethics that they follow to the letter, and are always working to make the world a better place for everyone. They are passionate people who will wage war or love with equal ability and skill.

Aries Twos are very impulsive, and can be sidetracked when they run across places or things that match their interest. But, once they take on a task, they never quit, and they will never give up on people they believe in. They will always offer them another chance in life. These souls make excellent scholars and debaters, always having all the facts about a situation, and using them to vanquish their opponents.

===> Conclusion

Emma Watson’s Astrology / Life Path combination shows us that Hermione Granger is an easy role for her, because she is playing herself. She is that A-plus student that she plays in the ‘Harry Potter’ films. It will be very interesting to see how her passion and personality translate into other roles in the next few years when she tries to play something different from her own personality.

UPDATE (9/23/09): I uploaded an HD (High-Definition) version of this video. Check it out! www.youtube.com —– Hermione is unfaithful to Harry and cheats on him with Ron. This kind of video has been done (possibly overdone) before on YouTube, but you may find this video to have a more “dramatic” feel to it, if not sometimes humorous. You’ll see what I mean 😉 Synopsis: Harry and Ron are both clueless as to Hermione’s cheating ways. In the video, she’s playing both of them in the beginning. Then when Harry discovers Hr/R in the Leaky Cauldron together, he gets suspicious and confronts Ron in the courtyard. The final dialogue piece, is about Harry & Ron arguing about the time that Ron found out Harry & Hermione were ‘together’, near Hagrid’s Hut and Hermione yells “RON!”, because he ran off heart broken. It’s all about Harry & Ron fighting over Hermione.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

Emma Watson Movie Actress

Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson (born 15 April 1990) is an English actress and model who rose to prominence playing Hermione Granger, one of three starring roles in the Harry Potter film series. Watson was cast as Hermione at the age of nine, having previously acted only in school plays. From 2001 to 2010, she starred in seven Harry Potter films alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint; she will return for the final installment: the second part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Watson’s work on the Harry Potter series has earned her several awards and more than £10 million. She made her modelling debut for Burberry’s Autumn/Winter campaign in 2009.

In 2007, Watson announced her involvement in two non-Harry Potter productions: the television adaptation of the novel Ballet Shoes and an animated film, The Tale of Despereaux. Ballet Shoes was broadcast on 26 December 2007 to an audience of 5.2 million, and The Tale of Despereaux, based on the novel by Kate DiCamillo, was released in 2008 and grossed over US million in worldwide sales.-wikipedia.org-


2011 been a magical year for Emma Watson. And to celebrate her birthday, we’re taking a look at her sartorial successes.

By this time last year, the 21-year-old was already a seasoned red carpet pro. But the “Harry Potter” star further upped the ante when she chopped off her locks this past summer. “Yes, I cut my hair off a few days ago! I love it — feels incredible. Hope you like it!” the Brit tweeted on Aug. 5 before redirecting fans to her updated profile picture on Facebook.

She doesn’t just wear the clothes, Watson also helped design a small collection for Alberta Ferretti, called “Pure Threads” which is 100% organic and sold exclusively at albertaferretti.com.

And unfortunately, the actress doesn’t have real-life access to the a Time-Turner, a time-traveling device. She decided to take time off from her studies at Brown University explaining on her website that juggling courses and other commitments was, “a little impossible.”

With the final “Harry Potter” hitting theaters this summer and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” to start filming we’ll have plenty more opportunities to witness Watson’s sartorial magic!

Watson’s not the only Ivy League drop out. Check out stars who’ve ditched textbooks for scripts instead.
