Interesting Harry Info

So, as always, I was reading my updates on and there was a brittish journalist who was on set of Order of the Pheonix and had a few interviews. This part was interesting...don't worry there are no spoilers. It is just something fun to ponder:

" Finally, the big tidbit that got all the Harry Potter geeks mumbling in hushed whispers to each other. In the original draft of the screenplay for ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, they had decided to remove a character from the story. Rowling read over the screenplay and said “I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” that they were free to do whatever they liked, of course, but “if you make a 7th movie you’ll have tied your hands.”

Heyman wouldn’t reveal who that character was and all the Potter nerds (myself included) were debating the point afterwards. Theories included Grawp, Luna and Bellatrix. Luna might be a possibility, but I thought it might be extra tricky of them if they meant James Potter, who we see in a flashback (those that have read the book know what part).

Did Heyman mean that the scene was important or the character itself? Hrmmm…"

Personally, I think it is either Bellatrix or James Potter. Because those two scenes are definitely ones they could've left out without confusion in the movie. AND I've read that Bellatrix says like 5 total words in the movie...and that she has a very small role. BUT Luna very well could be a possibility. Who else could it be!!! I am so excited to read 5 again so that I could see possibilities. Hmmm...

I think it was probably the flashback stuff. It would be easy not to include that, but of course very important to the big pic with snape. Bellatrtrix in my opinion would be easy to introduce later. but who knows.

I need to get on the website and check it out, but I after reading what you wrote I would lean towards Bellatrix...I hope so anyway, I want there to be more to that whole story. They can't leave Luna out of the 5th movie!
