Behind the scenes


Notes and references

  1. World Exclusive Interview with J K Rowling
  2. 2.0 2.1 Though his house is unseen on Harry Potter and Me and ungiven on Pottermore, it is known that the list of students in Harry's year contained five males and five females in each house. Ravenclaw lacks two known males, and Oliver Rivers and Roger Malone are the only males whose houses are ungiven. However Anthony Goldstein and Michael Corner (whose houses were initially Hufflepuff) were moved to Ravenclaw, therefore two of the original Ravenclaw students (Stephen Cornfoot, Kevin Entwhistle, Roger Malone and Oliver Rivers) were moved to Hufflepuff.
