The first Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, was published in 1997, and Rowling is today worth £795million.

That’s in no small part thanks to the phenomenal success of the subsequent film franchise, which debuted in 2001.

The stars of the flicks were reunited earlier this month in an hour-long special, “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts”.

The reunion brought back a lot of memories for fans and the cast alike.

Viewers also got an insight into some behind-the-scenes romances as Emma Watson, who starred as Hermione Granger in the films, admitted her teenage crush on co-star Tom Felton, who played her nemesis Draco Malfoy.

The actress said she “fell in love” with Tom as a youngster, toevoeging: “I used to come in every day and look for his number on the call sheet, it was number seven, and if his name was on the call sheet, it was an extra exciting day.

“He was three years above me and so for him he was like, you’re like my little sister.”
