On the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to apologize to fans for the death of Remus Lupin, the werewolf wizard who once served as a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts.
You can check out her heartfelt comments below.
Once again, it's the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts so, as promised, I shall apologise for a death. This year: Remus Lupin.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 2, 2016
In the interests of total honesty I'd also like to confess that I didn't decide to kill Lupin until I wrote Order if the Phoenix.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 2, 2016
Arthur lived, so Lupin had to die. I'm sorry. I didn't enjoy doing it. The only time my editor ever saw me cry was over the fate of Teddy. 😢— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 2, 2016
Recently, it was announced that Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them script would be published.
