Harry Potter and the Dead Best Friend

It’s hard to imagine the Harry Potter series without the presence of Ron Weasley throughout the whole seven books and eight movies. But it has come out today that J.K. Rowling thought about killing Ron halfway through the famous series of books.

It is hard to imagine a world where Ron Weasley is dead but apparently he was once on the chopping block. This news is shocking, of course, and has the whole internet buzzing.

For me, it feels like when J.K. Rowling announced that Dumbledore was gay, which seemed, as this does, as a way to grab a little more of the spotlight. I am interested in the secrets behind the well loved stories, but I thought that was what Pottermore was for.

What do you think about the news that Ron nearly snuffed it? You can read more about this story at Yahoo Movies.
