Great little video that delves into the life of JK Rowling prior to Harry Potter. We get some great little 'myths' about what's going to happen. But we also get a quick little glimpse of what happens in the 7th and final book. This movie is quite old. If I remember correctly it came out just before PoA so it's a bit outdated. But if you don't mind reminiscing you'll love this.

This video shows a lot of the awards JK has received over the years and also delves into her past with her sister and friends. It also tells us about a few people who grew up with JK in her hometown and about all the games they played together with JK as the storyteller.

There is a quick little tidbit during an award ceremony where JK tells us what she really thinks of Dudley and she hints at what's going to happen to him in book 7. So if you want to find out... Check it out yourself.
