In August, many fans were up in arms over this photo, that appeared in Entertainment Weekly and incorrectly named Tom Riddle’s paternal ancestors. The name “Marvolo” appeared at that time, which is from Tom Riddle’s maternal line, and the dates were unrealistic according to the background info from the books.
Reader Naomi sent us this photo from MovieFone, which shows that WB has fixed the error, taking out “Marvolo” and changing Tom Sr.’s birthdate from 1915 to 1905. First a comma, now a gravestone – the power of the fans! Thanks Naomi!
