Harry Potter fans beware - another beloved character is facing the chop. Or it could just be his nemesis Draco Malfoy.
Millionaire author JK Rowling has admitted that another character will die in her next book, and it could even be Harry himself, Sky News reported.
Rowling was asked on her website: "Are you going to kill off any more characters?"
She replied: "Yes, sorry."
The sixth book, &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/society/2003/03/15/44451.html ' target=_blank>Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, is due to be published next year. Rowling said earlier this year Harry will definitely survive to the seventh and final book – but hinted he may die at the end.
"You have to wait and see whether he survives to be a grown-up," she said, Scotsman informed.
Before the publication of her last installment, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," Rowling teased readers by revealing that another wizard would fall.
That Harry Potter book - like the four that preceded it - was an instant best seller.
