    Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    So who's it going to be?

    LONDON (Reuters) - Children's authorJ.K. Rowling has revealed that at least two characters will die in the seventh and final installment of her bestselling Harry Potter series, but was careful not to say who.

    Children and adults are expected to rush and buy the final Harry Potter novel in their tens of millions when it is complete, and if the publication of the sixth book is anything to go by, secrecy surrounding the plot will be tight.

    Rowling has already said that the final chapter of the seventh book was written long ago.

    "The final chapter is hidden away, although it's now changed very slightly," she said in an interview broadcast on Monday on Britain's Channel 4. "One character got a reprieve, but I have to say two die that I didn't intend to die."

    When asked to be more specific, she added: "No, I'm not going to commit myself, because I don't want the hate mail or anything else."
    She did explain that she understood an author's desire to kill off the main character of a successful series.

    "I've never been tempted to kill him (Harry) off before the end of book seven, because I always planned seven books and that's where I want to go.

    "I can completely understand, however, the mentality of an author who thinks 'Well, I'm going to kill them off because that means there can be no non-author-written sequels ... so it will end with me, and after I'm dead and gone they won't be able to bring back the character'."

    Rowling, 40, wrote the first Harry Potter adventure when she was an unemployed single mother, but has gone on to become one of the richest authors in history with a personal fortune estimated at more than $1 billion.

    The Harry Potter series has sold an estimated 300 million copies worldwide

    Voldemort for sure. Snape because Voldemort will find out his treachery in being loyal to Dumbledore and kill him before he is, in turn, killed by Harry.

    Re: Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    Harry and Voldemort - because if you recall Voldemort split his soul and can only be killed if all the things/people he split himself into are destroyed. Given his link to Harry, I think he'll have to die too.

    Would be interesting if Ron went to the dark side and got killed, but my guess is he got the reprieve - unless by reprieve she means to bring back his godfather?

    I wonder if Hagrid will survive this next one? He'd be a good candidate for a really emotional death.

    Or.... TWO characters, like... the twins?

    Dang, she's good at keeping us guessing, I hope she doesn't stop writing altogether after book 7.

    Re: Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    I'm going to have to go with Ron or Hermione...just when they start working things out, one gets taken away. I don't know how depressing it's going to be once the final book is published and read, but if she kills off Harry, remember what happened to Shelock Holmes when Doyle killed him off? There was a repreive...but I don't think it's going to be Harry....at least I hope not. And I hope Hagrid doesn't die either....but then again, I also hoped
    Spoiler
    Dumbledore
    didn't die either, so I haven't been too lucky.

    Wasn't sure if the spoilers were needed or not, but better be safe than sorry.

    Re: Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    good ol JK keeping everyone guessing. however I don't think dumbledore is dead or lets say it this way dumbledore as we know him is dead but remember his pet is a phoenix.... and what happens to a phoenix? IT rises out of the ashes and lives again. as far as who dies.. there are so many characters it could be that I hope it's someone like malvoy or could be snape too. It would be hard to imagine that after reading so many books and following this young boy for seven years that she would be cruel enough to kill him off and not let him run the ministry of magic or teach at the school.

    Ok, not really- but what is wrong with you people thinking Harry will die?? He is not a horcrux.....why does he have to die to kill Voldemort?

    I think its because Rowling made Harry to be the opposite of Voldemort. They have to both die to keep balance. I also happen to believe that Harry is the final Horcrux. Plus Rowling said she will do no more Harry Potter books, so what better way is there to make sure that no more books are written then to kill him off?

    Re: Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    What makes you so sure he's not a horcrux Neph? Remember when they talked about Horcruxes, how you split yourself and left part of you in different places? Harry has amazing powers, he can see what Voldemort sees, and he's a parselmouth. He could easily be a horcrux.

    Then again, Rowling is the mistress of misdirection, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    She could create something like 'Ron will walk in, find Harry in Malfoy's arms, get jealous, and kill them both'. (oogie has been hearing too much about 'fan fic' lately)

    Re: Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    I'm still convinced that either Ron or Hermione are gonna get killed off. My best guess would be Ron. Personally I don't think Harry is going to die. No I KNOW he isn't.......or maybe it's just my fanatical wish for a very happy ending.

    Re: Rowling says 2 characters will die in last Harry Potter book

    I think that Voldemort is a given, unless the series ends on a horrible note with Voldemort winning out. I highly doubt that though.

    I think the other one will be Ron or Hermione. This makes me sad, as I want to see them together! I wonder how a main character is defined and if she means that 2 main characters will die and some others. I always believed that more like 6 or 7 characters would die as the war continues.
