In other 'Harry Potter'-death-related news, J.K. Rowling has revealed that she almost killed one your favorite characters from the beloved franchise. In an interview with The Guardian, the author admits how close she came to axing Ron Weasley at the end of the seventh and final 'Potter' book. So, what stopped her?

"Funnily enough, I planned from the start that none of them would die. Then midway through, which I think is a reflection of the fact that I wasn't in a very happy place, I started thinking I might polish one of them off. Out of sheer spite," Rowling told the paper. "But I think in my absolute heart of heart of hearts, although I did seriously consider killing Ron, [I wouldn't have done it]."

You have to love that Rowling refers to killing one of her characters as "polishing them off." At least Weasley fans everywhere can now sleep well knowing that their "king" is living the good life with Hermione and their two children, Rose and Hugo.

You can see Ron, and his other mates, when 'The Deathly Hallows Part II' hits shelves on Nov. 11.
