Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling will appear on the The Oprah Winfrey Show this Friday, October first. The interview was recorded at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh where Rowling completed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows back in 2007.
In a wide-ranging interview that took place in Edinburgh, Scotland, Rowling speaks candidly with Winfrey about her life and career as well as her journey to becoming one of the most recognizable writers of children’s literature today. Rowling, who rarely does interviews, also shares her thoughts on the possibility of ever writing another Harry Potter book in the future.
Rowling reveals the moment when she knew that her life had changed forever. It was while in the United States on her second book tour: “There was this enormous Barnes & Noble, and I thought, oh my God. And the queue snaked up the street, up the Barnes & Noble, up through four floors and they took me in the back entrance. They opened the door and they screamed. They screamed….That’s a real stand-out moment for me. I knew it was getting big in that there was press attention and so on, but at that point, that for me…was when it felt ‘Beatle-esque.'”
Rowling also reveals to Winfrey that coping with the pressures of sudden stardom was not easy: “You ask about the pressure. At that point, I kept saying to people, yeah I’m coping…but the truth was there were times when I was barely hanging on by a thread.”
