At the London press conference for “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” late last week, producer David Heyman revealed that one character was cut then added back into the film’s screenplay under JK Rowling’s advisement.
“Jo reads each draft, she reads each screenplay, and she said, ‘You know, I wouldn’t do that if I were you. Or you can, but if you get to make a seventh film, you’ll be tied in knots.'” said Heyman.
Many have wondered which character that might be, well David Yates confirmed to MTV that it’s the Black family house elf Kreacher, introduced in ‘Phoenix’, that had to stay in.
“We took Kreacher out, and Jo said, ‘Listen guys, you don’t have to put Kreacher back, but I’m just telling you, if you want to kind of keep a thread going for six and seven, you might want Kreacher to come back.’ She basically told us Kreacher plays a role in Seven, in a sense. She hinted. We thought about it for five seconds, and he came back” said Yates.
