Bone up on your Harry Potter history. Let’s try harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2 script pdf email address again! ROWLING AND HARRY SHARE A BIRTHDAY. And that’s not the only influence Rowling had on her characters: She’s said that Hermione is a bit like her when she was younger, and her favorite animal is an otter—which is, of course, Hermione’s patronus.
