I love her!! As well as Emma T and her ex Kenneth Branaugh(sp?) I really wish they had been able to work it out--their Shakespeare takes were just sooooo human!!

2. Wow, that's perfect!
I saw some spoilers for book 7 online today and I managed NOT to read them! Which is amazing for me, but I really do want to be surprised. :D

5. The only thing I've seen
has been something long discussed already and that is Ron and Hermione getting together. Did you see the info the other day from John Irving and Stephen King both imploring with JK not to kill off Harry?

It's very strange--we see a book every two years, and a film about every year or year and a half. They're finally catching up with each other. But it still sucks to have to wait so long.

7. I know, it's killing me.
I guarantee you (and this is not a spoiler but just my own surmisings) that Snape is not evil. I guarantee that he killed Dumbledore (although I'm not 100% sure Dumbledore is dead, even though Rowling has said again that he is) because Dumbledore forced him to. "Please, Severus." That was Dumbledore forcing Snape to go through with it. Mark my words.

14. Well, if I recall correctly
from the last book, yes, Dumbledore did die, and for real. His picture is already walking and talking. Perhaps, like Obi-Wan, he feels he can do more from the "other side." As for Snape, I have a feeling, too, that he's not evil, just very misguided. It was mainly a ploy to put him back in favor with Voldemort, so that his alliance can't be questioned.

One character who "might" return is Sirius Black, because I don't think he is dead.

As for the two who might or will die, I would assume they die in the battle with Voldemort, but I also suspect that while they might be major characters, they are people like Minerva McGonagall, Snape himself, Hagrid (perhaps) or that ditzy one, Trelawney. I really wish the Dursleys would disappear permanently!

3. Hmmmm...
I had always had someone more like an English Angelica Houston in my head when reading Belltrix's lines, someone more mature.

Helena seems a little young to me.

4. Bellatrix
Is the same age as Snape, Lupin, and Sirius, which would put her in her late 30s/early 40s. HBC is 40, so she's right on target.

6. True, but she looks younger to me. More like late 20's or early 30's
