At the London press conference for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, one of the big topics of conversation was which character was cut, than added back into the film’s screenplau under JK Rowling’s advisement.
“Jo reads each draft,” David Heyman said, “she reads each screenplay, and she said, ‘You know, I wouldn’t do that if I were you. Or you can, but if you get to make a seventh film, you’ll be tied in knots.’”
MTV has been doing a little investigating and finally got a definite answer.
“It was Kreacher, actually,” director David Yates confirmed to MTV. “We took Kreacher out, and Jo said, ‘Listen guys, you don’t have to put Kreacher back, but I’m just telling you, if you want to kind of keep a thread going for six and seven, you might want Kreacher to come back.’ She basically told us Kreacher plays a role in Seven, in a sense. She hinted. We thought about it for five seconds, and he came back.”
What role could Kreacher play in the seventh and final book? We have no idea. Read more about the story and the disappearance of the mysterious locket at MTV Blogs.
