More of this interview...i love it when you talk harry potter to me
Q:“Do you have any favourite authors or books that had a big impact on your life, either as a child or an adult?” – Maria V. (23, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
A:It’s cliché, but honestly, the book/series that had the most profound effect on me was Harry Potter. I feel like I grew up with those characters (I was the same age as Harry, Ron, and Hermione as I read them). They were really who and what I needed during those times, who and what we ALL needed. Some of my happiest memories are going to those mid-night release parties. In many ways I think JK Rowling gave our generation a childhood.
Q:“Have you met J.K Rowling? If you did, what happened?” – Angela W.
A:Yes! I met her at the White House on Easter 2010 and was more excited to meet her than to meet the President. Through the shaking and stuttering, I managed to say hello and just thanked her, telling her I really needed her books at the time I read them. She was super sweet and couldn’t have been nicer. I felt like a total idiot though, we were performing in costume and I was in Kurt’s tightest pair of skinny jeans. Typical.
