Potter Will Die

Boy wizard HARRY POTTER will die in the last JK ROWLING novel - according to the series' audio tape narrator JIM DALE.

The former CARRY ON actor claims Rowling is tiring of the character and wants full closure at the end of the seventh and final novel.

Dale says, "She has lived with Harry Potter so long she really wants to kill him off."

DANIEL RADCLIFFE, who has played the part of Harry since the first movie HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCEROR'S STONE (HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE), also believes the character is destined for doom.

He recently admitted: "I would like Harry to die at the end of that seventh book. I think it would be a very good ending.

"I wouldn't want it to be sentimental. I don't like sentimental ends to books or films. I think that would undermine the darkness the rest of the books have."

British writers do not kill off their heros...See Dickens, Bronte and Sherlock Holmes. It was also too hard for her to kill Sirius Black so I really don't think this will happen. Remeber Daniel also has a tendency to make things up about the books.

I will not like it at all if Harry Potter dies in the seventh book. If I had known he died at the end I would have never started reading the book in the first place. PLUS, we need to remember that this is a kids novel and do you really want the book to end with Harry DEAD? I mean come on, the bad guy is suppose to die at the end not the good guy. All the crap that Harry's had to put up with since that dreadful night He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named killed James and Lily. The Dursleys treated him badly as a child growing up and showed him no affection what so ever (for God sakes he slept in a closet - poor thing). Then when he does find out the truth about himself he faces ridicule, pain, nightmares, near death experiences and he just can't get a break! I mean, why did JK Rowlings write about this poor boy if all she wanted to do is kill him anyway. She might have well just went ahead and been done with it in the first book. Why didn't she just kill him off in the Chamber of Secrets when he was eleven. You know why, because the PARENTS wouldn't have let their children read it. What a let down to know that after all he's put up with that he DIES anyways...what a waste!

OMG She can't possibly be considering this!!Harry Potter books got kids interested in reading. It's hard enough to know there will be only one more but to kill off the hero that kids admire??What kind of impression would that make on some kid who has a crappy life and finds some hope for himself in Harry Potter?? Harry should defeat Voldemort and also teach the Malfoys a lesson about bigotry.
