I have just read the news from BBC website stated that J. K. Rowling, the author of the acclaimed Harry Potter series, revealed that Albus Dumbledore, one of the most important characters in the series, is actually homosexual. The truth came out during the Q&A session at New York’s Carnegie Hall, which is a part of her Open Book Tour in the U.S. This is the confirmation of internet rumor after the last book of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was on sale and readers from around the world had a chance to know more about the past of Dumbledore, one of the most beloved characters from the series. Now, as J. K. Rowling suggested herself, it opens the room for fan fiction to create more spin-off stories.
Now, I guess Sir Ian McKellen, who perfectly portrays the wizard Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, would be an excellent cast as Dambledore in Harry Potter series. Don’t you think so?
