Harry Potter's Oliver Phelps Says Meeting J.K. Rowling Was 'Intimidating'

Harry Potter‘s 20th Anniversary is here!

Can you believe it’s really been 20 years since the first book hit shelves? We can’t either.

In a recent interview, Oliver Phelps (he played George Weasley) opened up about meeting the author, J.K. Rowling on the set of the movies.

“She was probably the most intimidating person I’ve ever met in my life,” he confessed. “Not by any fault of her own, just by ? she made everything that we were doing.”

We can imagine that would be intimidating!

Oliver adds, “I remember we were in Rupert’s dressing room on one of the later films, and she came in and totally blindsided all of us. I think we were doing something silly, like, we were playing darts but with a crossbow or something not very mature.”

“She explained where the twins characters came from and where their influences are and stuff like that. I didn’t want to rock the boat too much and ask, ‘Well, what do they do afterwards … what does one of them do afterwards?’ But it was quite interesting learning the backstories and where the characters came from.”
