Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was desperate to know whether or
not his character would still be alive by the end of the final
book. Author JK Rowling reveals that Radcliffe had been so
concerned about Harry dying in 'The Deathly Hallows' that when she
took him out for dinner to discuss the character, he begged her to
reveal his fate.
"At one point, during dinner, he said, 'Look, I've just got to
ask you, 'Do I die?'" Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. Rowling
adds that she barely managed to field the question by giving
Radcliffe a roundabout answer, without revealing whether Potter
would live or die.
"I thought quick and I whispered, so no one else could hear,
'You get a death scene.' But Dan's very smart and I'm pretty sure
he would have walked away from that dinner thinking, 'Yeah, I get a
death scene but what does that mean?'" she said.
Potter series came to an end recently when the final book - The
Deathly Hallows - was released worldwide on July 21.
