Yesterday, we first told you that there was to be a special on ITV featuring actor Robbie Coltrane who portrays Hagrid in the Harry Potter films. Author J.K. Rowling was interviewed for this special and the video clip of her segment is now online at the Snitch. In the clip, Jo speaks more on the character of Hagrid saying that he

“…was always supposed to be this um almost elemental force. He’s like the King of the Forest or the Green Man. He’s this semi-wild person who lives on the edge of the forest. And for Harry, Ron and Hermione he’s benign, but he’s supposed to be quite intimidating towards the people who don’t maybe appreciate his particular taste in wild creatures, monsters…”

You can watch the entire clip with Jo, which also includes comments from Robbie Coltrane, and actress Emma Thompson (Professor Trelawney) speaking about her friend Robbie as well, here at the Snitch.
Thanks much to the Snitch!
