Pottermore and JK Rowling Reveal More About Gilderoy Lockhart

At the Universal Orlando Resort three-day event A Celebration of Harry Potter, Pottermore held an exclusive panel revealing future plans and ideas for the interactive website.

Author J.K. Rowling did not attend in person but offered new information via exclusive clips shared online by The Guardian. Sharing some interesting details about a longtime favorite: Gilderoy Lockhart.

Textual details of the audio clips are below, however you can listen to the original clips. These facts may be included on in the future.
  • He was the only child in his family with magical abilities.
  • Sorted into Ravenclaw; narrowly escaped being sorted into Slytherin
  • Very proud of his naturally wavy hair, Lockhart at one point established a haircare line of products
  • He discovered the use of eggs from a very vicious creature. These shampoos were too dangerous to produce, so he never achieved fame in the cosmetics department
  • Gilderoy Lockhart is not a pseudonym but is his real name. His mother was a very ambitious woman and encouraged him in the belief that he is a remarkable person
Where can you find more audio clips like these? On Pottermore, of course! As JK Rowling reveals more information about her wizarding world, audio clips can be found on the site when users have unlocked special content!
