J.K. Rowling surprises fans with Harry Potter's origin; Says the concept came to her while on a train journey

The follower asked Rowling to describe "the truth about this "birthplace" of Harry Potter".

Ever since the first book was published, Harry Potter incurred a cult following.

It is known that J. K. Rowling started working on "Harry Potter" not in Scotland, as previously thought.

During a Q&A with fans about rumours associated with the Harry Potter books and films, the Rowling explained "I was thinking of putting a section on my website about all the alleged inspirations and birthplaces of Potter".

But now, Rowling has actually exposed Edinburgh is really not where the writing of the kid that lived started. "The first bricks of Hogwarts were placed in a flat in Clapham Junction". "I'm perennially amused by the idea that Hogwarts was directly inspired by handsome places I saw or visited, because it's so far from the truth".

She also went on to reveal that the high-flying game of Quidditch most famously seen in the Harry Potter series was born after she stayed for a night at the Bourneville Hotel in Manchester.

She clarified that a fan tweeted a picture from the bookstore Livraria Lello, in Porto, Portugal, that is supposedly said to have inspired the Hogwarts library but in reality J.K. Rowling has never visited the place.

Warner Bros executives said that JK Rowling made an impressive world where they've captivated audiences of all ages throughout what they believed an outstanding journey.

As for the moment the idea came to her, Rowling revealed that happened on a Manchester train.

She recognized who wrote in a cafe in Rua Santa Catarina, Portugal.

"If this excites people who are upset about the bookstore in Oporto, I sometimes write it here", she wrote.

Rowling has continued to dispel some of the other rumors about her inspirations for key icons from the world of Harry Potter. "It's probably the most handsome cafసిన I've ever written". Over time, quite a few tales concerning the places and moments that impressed her to write down concerning the bespectacled wizard have develop into integral elements of how we view the collection' historical past, too.

"I sometimes hear that Hogwarts is based on one or the other of Edinburgh's schools, but it's also 100% a lie", says Rowling.

"Hogwarts was created long before I applauded one of them!"

Unfortunately, when it concerns any kind of looters regarding upcoming job, Dumbledore articulated frustration finest: "Alas, earwax".
