J.K. Rowling Biography on Lifetime

  • Jul 5, 2011
Rating:
+4

Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story dramatizes Joanne Rowling's life from her childhood until the beginning of her success.  J.K. Rowling, author of the mega best-selling Harry Potter series, is one of the richest, most famous women in the world. It is difficult to believe the downward spiral her life had been on before she sold "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone". It is a rags to riches story for the ages.

Rowling is first seen as a highly imaginative child, making up stories for her friends, sister and herself to act out. Many of these were about witches. She was very smart and always wanted to be a writer. Rowling attended a private school with uniforms with a very nice headmaster.

It was fun seeing some of the people in her early life that became the inspiration for characters in Harry Potter.  After watching Magic Beyond Words, you will have no doubt that Rowling's red-headed college friend, Sean, was the inspiration for Ron Weasly, especially after this exchange as Rowling says goodbye:
Sean: Maybe you'll write me into one of your stories
Rowling: You're such a weasly guy
