Dumbledore loves Grindelwald?!
Harry Potter author JK Rowling today revealed that Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay.
The Edinburgh writer made the admission during a question and answer session with fans at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
She was asked by one young fan if Dumbledore finds “true love”.
“Dumbledore is gay,” Rowling replied to gasps and applause.
She said he was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards.
Ms Rowling told the audience that while working on the planned sixth Potter film, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, she spotted a script reference to a girl the wizard once cared for. A note was passed to director David Yates, revealing the truth about him.
If I read the books, this might be of more importance to me, but it’s still pretty cool!
