J.K.Rowling to do TV Interview with Cub Reporter
Jun 08, 2005
ITV has now launched their version of the Ultimate Harry Potter Fan contest. Children between the ages of 8 and 16 are allowed to enter for this chance to not only attend the midnight launch party in Edinburgh of Half-Blood Prince, but also to interview author J.K. Rowling on television.
Initial’s series producer for the TV shows, Katherine Allen, says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for a true Harry Potter fan to meet their heroine and find out the answers to questions that they’ve always wanted to ask her.”
As well as putting their skills and knowledge to the test in the TV quest, they will also be one of only 70 children to attend the reading of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. And the icing on the cake will be the chance to meet JK Rowling and interview her face to face.
“It’s a TV interview that everyone wants but only one child in the UK will actually get! We will give them all the training and help they need to ensure it’s a must-see TV event and with their love of all things Harry Potter we are sure they will have dozens of burning questions to put to the author.”
