Harry Potter is going to die?

Joanne Kathleen Rowling, 40, author of the Harry Potter series of books had hinted in a recent television interview.  In the final installment (7th book) of the boy wizard series, 2 main characters will perish.

I wrote the final chapter in something like 1990, so I’ve known exactly how the series is going to end,’ she told a chat show on Monday.

The final chapter is hidden away although it’s now changed very slightly. One character got a reprieve. But I have to say two die that I didn’t intend to die

However when asked whether Harry Potter would be one of them to perish, J.K. Rowling said that she had never been tempted to kill off the boy wizard before the finale.

Isn’t it interesting how writer actually can create a character, a world and some interaction.  Add a bit of magic (I think) and the story will come alive and unfold itself in the mind of the writer?  Stephen King also admitted that his characters run the story themselves once he created them.  It a wonder how a mind works.
