A Quarter of a Century old! And I still remember him as David Copperfield. 

So much respect for this guy and the professional choices he’s making. If he continues on this path, he’ll be a legend by 50. There’s never been a single interview or article written about Dan (excluding the daily fail) where he’s disliked or his reputation is smeared in any way. A true gentleman through and through. Other young actors should take note. 

Shout out to Marcia and Alan Radcliffe. Your parenting skills should be studied. You two managed to raise a decent and kind, level headed multi-millionaire and that deserves a special award too. 

Marcia, you pushed out a good one. ;)

Does Harry Potter belong to J.K. Rowling or readers?The best-selling author recently published a short story about Harry and his friends, which raises a good question: When an author says a series is finished, are the characters’ stories still hers to tell?
Give us your thoughts in the comments, Potter fans!

The Potterverse belongs to Jo until she dies and even years after according to the law. Those who complain that she’s continuing to add to HER canon world after the book series is done are nothing but whiners. She created it, she can do whatever she wants with it. Even critique it. She’ll never rewrite what’s already been published (even though some harmony shippers hope she will) so the best thing we all can do it accept that we are ONLY the audience. You can be disappointed with HER choice but you can’t change it.If new content disrupts your fanficy day dreams then that’s your problem, not JKR.

what I love about JK Rowling is that if she’s ever really bored she can just sit down and write fanfiction for her own series and publish it on the internet and continue her reign as one of the greatest authors of all time indefinitely

Except in her case, it isn’t fan fiction. Its completely canon.

Unless you’re confusing fan fiction with short stories.

And I think part of why she started the Pottermore site is to have the freedom to release any further Potter canon without the restrictions of book publishing. Its genius really, because the interest will always be there no matter how small the contributions are.

"I’m not ready"

So I watched Lullaby. Enjoyed it for the most part. The ending is predictably sad and well performed by everyone. Jess has a great scene where her character gives a thought provoking argument against assisted suicide, but deep down she’s just not ready to let her dying father go. By the end, I dare you not to be weeping.
