But what’s more is that, this is exactly what drove her to introduce the dreadful Azkaban guardians, The Dementors!
Yes guys, for our Tuesday trivia this time we bring to you what and how did J.K Rowling bring the cruel and unforgiving Dementors to life. In her interview, the famed author revealed that it was the feeling of emptiness, cold and numb insides and lack of happiness that she felt went her mother passed away which eventually gave way to the Dementors and that is exactly how they make us feel!
In an interview during the 2000s, Rowling was quoted saying, “It was entirely conscious. And entirely from my own experience. Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced. It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it’s a healthy feeling. It’s a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.”
Revolving around the lives of three best friends Harry Potter, Ron Weasly and Hermoine Granger, the Harry Potter continues to remain one of the most loved series among cine lovers.
