Could this be possible? Harry Potter dies?
From the incredible author J.K. Rowling has came a series of books that have more than captivated millions and brought reading back to many children
and adults. Could the final chapter in the Harry Potter series spell death for the young wizard?
Daniel Radcliffe, who stars as young Harry Potter believes that is the case...
LONDON - Harry Potter may never grow up. Daniel Radcliffe, who stars as the daring schoolboy wizard, said Friday that Harry may die in the last book
of J.K. Rowling's magical series.
"I'm going to be really unpopular for saying this about Harry, but I've always had the suspicion - with everything that's going on - that he might
die," Radcliffe, 14, told a news conference to promote the third film of Rowling's series, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban."
Rowling has remained silent about the fate of Harry in the seventh and final book. But with each new installment, Rowling reveals more connections
between the character and his archenemy, the evil wizard Lord Voldemort.
"Harry and Voldemort have the same core in them, we get to see that in the fourth film," Radcliffe said. "The only way Voldemort could die is if
Harry dies as well."
Voldemort was responsible for the deaths of Harry's parents and left the young wizard with the distinctive zigzag scar on his forehead.
The pair have similar powers - including their wands and their fluency in Parsel - and Voldemort has been unable to kill Harry.

I have seen times when my children have waited for the mail man to come with the next copy of a Harry Potter novel and watched them wait in lines at
book stores for others. I have seen them spend hours reading and enjoying it beyond words.. and I have even read them myself.
In spite of the darker and somewhat disturbing aspect of the Harry Potter series I believe it has been good to have our children reading these novels
and exploring written fiction. But could J.K. Rowling be planning the unthinkable? The death of Harry Potter?
Even though a fictional character I think my children and many of us have come to know this young man. and I have to wonder what the impact of this
