JK Rowling has admitted to doing something a lot of us wish she would have and that is killing off the character Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series out of sheer spite. Although Rowling hadn’t really planned on killing off any of the main characters in the book she was tempted to off him after finding herself in a “unappy place” in her mind.
JK Rowling commented
“I think in my absolute heart of heart of hearts, although I did seriously consider killing Ron, [I wouldn’t have]. It’s a real relief to be able to talk about it all.”
She made this admission during an interview conducted by Harry Potter star and title role actor Daniel Radcliffe for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 DVD.
