J.K. Rowling

Reports have been making their way online regarding a “unauthorized made-for-TV biography” of the life of Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling beginning production next month. The Times Colonist is reporting that the film, titled “Strange Magic,” is set to be shot in Victoria, Canada “with the city used to re-create locations in Edinburgh, Portugal and London, including Leicester Square.” The Herald Scotland also has a report online, saying “A little-known actor has been cast to play Rowling’s first husband, Jorge Arantes, and the writer herself will be portrayed by Australian- born Poppy Montgomery, best known as FBI agent Samantha Spade in the US series Without A Trace.” Stay close to Leaky for updates as they come available.
