This category is for articles and interviews that contain information relating to the Harry Potter canon.

You need to take in consideration that the canon from articles, online chats and interviews may have been provided without a time of reflection as long as when Rowling is working on a book and may contradict information from other sources of canon. Her exact quotes are also most valuable than reports of her comments.

Rowling also provided other elements of canon in other articles such as:

  • “From Mr Darcy to Harry Potter… by way of Lolita”, Sunday Times, May 21, 2000.
    • In this article written by Rowling she states that "the Harry Potter books were my chance to create my own, ideal big family, and my hero is never happier than when holidaying with the seven Weasleys."
  • "What Was the Name of That Nymph Again?, or Greek and Roman Studies Recalled." Contained within Pegasus Magazine, The Journal of University of Exeter Dept. of Classics and Ancient History, Issue 41, 1998:
