Sit down, Potter fans. You’ll need to brace for impact when watching this new clip from Dan Radcliffe and J.K. Rowling’s one-on-one conversation for the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 DVD/Blu-ray.

In this clip, Rowling reveals a huge factoid: She “seriously considered killing Ron.”

You can watch the shocking statement on video below. What do you think – should she have killed him?

Below is a transcript in case the video is pulled:

Rowling: Funnily enough, I planned from the start that none of them would die. Then midway through, which I think was a reflection that I wasn’t in a very happy place, I started thinking I might punish one of them off. [Laughter] Out of sheer spite. There!

Radcliffe: Midway through the book or midway through the series?

Rowling: Series. Yeah. In my absolute heart of hearts of hearts – although I did seriously consider Ron. Anyway, I can tell you it’s a real relief to talk about it.

Radcliffe: It must be lovely actually.

Rowling: It’s lovely.

Thanks to Sara for the tip.
