(MENAFN -Arab News) LONDON: After years of squabbling, Harry Potter’s best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Grainger finally became an item — but now their creator JK Rowling has admitted she made a mistake by marrying them off

Hermione — whose quick wits get the teen wizards out of many a scrape in Rowling’s hit novels — would have been better off with hero Harry, the British author said in comments published by the Sunday Times newspaper

In fact, Ron and Hermione would likely have ended up in marriage counselling, Rowling suggested

The author said she brought Hermione and Ron together for “very personal reasons”, not because they were a “credible” couple

She told Wonderland magazine in a rare interview: “I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That’s how it was conceived, really

“For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron,” Rowling says in an interview with Wonderland magazine, previewed by the Sunday Times and due out next Friday

“I know, I’m sorr, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. “Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.



Rowling’s interviewer in Wonderland was none other than British actress Emma Watson, who played Hermione in the blockbuster movie series based on the Potter books

The actress agreed with Rowling, saying: “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.

Rowling has sold more than 450 million copies of the Harry Potter books, which were made into eight films starring Daniel Radcliffe, Watson and Rupert Grint as Ron

The franchise has made Rowling an estimated fortune of 560 million (920 million), according to the Sunday Times’ Rich List 2013

An epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the best-selling series, reveals that Ron and Hermione marry and have two children, while Harry weds Ron’s younger sister Ginny.
