J.K. Rowling Confirms Hermione-Pronunciation Theory

Author J.K. Rowling confirmed the theory about Hermione pronouncing her name in the fourth book to prevent her readers from continuing to mispronounce it.

“It’s LeviOsa, not LeviosAR!” – Hermione Granger’s character is well known for correcting a pronunciation or two, such as one of her most iconic moments where she schooled Ron Weasley on the levitation spell. It was not only characters in the books that mispronounced spells or even names, but also fans and readers of the book series. Many readers were saying Hermione all sorts of ways before the fourth book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released and J.K. Rowling included a passage about the correct pronunciation. It looks like J.K. Rowling has a bit of Hermione in her, as the author just confirmed that she added it in to avoid any more confusion for readers.

A tweet from a fan brought up a long-time theory regarding a passage in the fourth book where Viktor Krum kept pronouncing her name as Her-my-own. The heroine corrected him and fans everywhere, by announcing it as Her-my-oh-nee slowly and clearly.

J.K. Rowling responded to the fan’s tweet, confirming that her intentions here were to school readers on how to say her name above anything else.

Daniel Radcliffe Reacting to Harry Potter Memes on Jimmy Fallon

On Thursday, September 13, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) attended the The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and reacted to Harry Potter memes.

During a Wednesday appearance on The Tonight Show to promote his new Broadway play The Lifespan of a Fact, our Harry Potter actor Daniel admitted that while he had seen funny memes of himself as Harry over the years, there were none that immediately came to mind.

Naturally, Jimmy Fallon then decided to show his guest some of his own personal favorites, including an image of young Harry holding a snitch with the Jay-Z-inspired text, “If you’re havin’ Quidditch problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but a snitch ain’t one.”

“You know, what’s cool about that stuff is that I never — as a kid and you’re just insecure at that age — I never felt cool at any point playing that character and sort of these things go like, ‘No, that was cool,’” Radcliffe mused. “People thought that was pretty cool.”

You can watch the entire clip above. Jimmy also asks Daniel about how he’s going to manage Fantasy football leagues while doing Sunday performances on Broadway. Enjoy!

Rumors: Evanna Lynch Joins “Dancing With The Stars”

Exciting rumors have been announced, Luna fans! Actress Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) is said to join the cast of “Dancing With the Stars”.

Dancing With the Stars is gearing up for its twenty-seventh season, and while the entire cast has yet to be announced, some details about the ensemble have started to trickle out. One recent piece of information is that Evanna Lynch, our beloved Luna Lovegood, has joined DWTS, as reported by Us Weekly.

A lot more rumors about who is joining the upcoming season are going around. Meanwhile, ABC only revealed on Good Morning America this Tuesday, as per Entertainment Tonight, that Disney star Milo Manheim will be paired up with Dancing With the Stars pro Witney Carson for the upcoming season.

For those who have never watched the show before, here is some information about how the show works.

The competition begins with an all-new cast of celebrities who will be paired up with the show’s pro dancers and brave the dance floor for the very first time. Each week these celebrities will leave their comfort zones and endure hours of grueling rehearsals to master new dance styles and technical choreography to perform a dance, which will be judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts as well as voted upon by viewers. In the end, only one star will rise above the rest to be crowned champion and win the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

So, we are quite certain that Dancing With The Stars asks for a little bit more complex dancing techniques and dance-steps than what Luna had to cope with during Yule Ball. However, Luna would undoubtedly just have a good time and not worry about the judges, or cameras, or what anyone else thinks, for that matter.
