Say It Ain't So! JK Rowling ALMOST Killed Off Ron Weasley!!!

jk rowling almost killed ron weasley

We are SO glad this didn't happen!

During a recent interview, JK Rowling announced to the world that she ALMOST killed off Ron Weasley while writing the Harry Potter books.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"Funnily enough, I planned from the start that none of them would die. Then midway through, which I think is a reflection of the fact that I wasn't in a very happy place, I started thinking I might polish one of them off. Out of sheer spite. 'There, now you definitely can't have him any more.'"

"But I think in my absolute heart of heart of hearts, although I did seriously consider killing Ron, [I wouldn't have done it]."

What an upsetting thought! Hopefully JK Rowling doesn't ever get into such an unhappy place in the future. Ya never know when she might decide to write another Potter book and kill off a few crucial characters!

What do U think? Should JK have ended Ron Weasley's life???

    I read a couple of them when I was a kid and thinking back now, it's kinda unrealistic that all 3 happen to survive like 10 encounters with the wizardry equivalent of Satan.
    Would have been more realistic to kill off one of them! And yeah Harry is the main character, so not him, hermione is too damn cute..so Ron would have obviously been the only option..cause he is just like the neutral character..would have been sad for the kids though..so I'm glad she kept him.

    Her I,agnation must be bloody wicked.. I hope she writes an adult fantasy series now that HP is finished!

    Considering Ron was severely injured in at least half the HP books, I'm not surprised she almost killed him. However, I do think she realized that she would have ruined the entire series if she killed any one of the three main characters. Killing Ron Weasley would have lost her every fan she had. Even more so, if she had killed Harry at the end of the series (as she's mentioned she almost did as well).

    In the Books, Ron was the biggest whiner in the world, and I wanted him to die, especially in the first 1/2 of the last book, ..Deathly Hallows. In the movie, he's more mellow. Commentor Auds is fucking wrong, b/c Harry Potter would have been better with Ron terminated.

    He should have died, really. He's useless to the whole plot. His only contribution to Harry is the Weasley family. Because as a person, he sucked. He's jealous of Harry, immature, and whinny. He doesn't deserved Harry's friendship and Hermione's love.
