In a recent interview with Her Wizardness, J. K. Rowling admits that Harry and Hermione "could have gone that way" because Hermione "shared something very instense with Harry," but that ultimately, they are not for each other.
They should have!!!!!! Don't u think???
Speaking of script-writer and good friend Steve Kloves, Rowling says that even he felt some uncertainty between the characters' relationship.
She says, "After he read book seven he said to me, 'You, know, I thought something was going to happen between Harry and Hermione, and I didn't know whether I wanted it or not.'"
Rowling maintains that Harry's true soulmate is Ginny, and that even though Hermione and Ron have shared moments, they are ultimately destined for a close friendship.
Which means more than a relationship, right?
We can't wait for the movie!
