1.In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Nick says he had not eaten in nearly 400 years. Yet he had, at the time, already been dead for 99 years longer than that. 2.The Harry Potter timeline is based upon Nick's deathday party in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Having died in 1492, and celebrating his 500th death day, this ostensibly places the novels in the early to mid 1990s. 3.In the film versions of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Nearly Headless Nick is played سے طرف کی John Cleese. Cleese is most famous for his work with Monty ازگر and his ویژن ٹیلی show, Fawlty Towers. At the time, he was also playing Q in the James Bond film series, giving him the distinction of appearing in the two biggest-grossing UK film series of all time. 3.In the first draft of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Nick sang a self-penned ballad explaining how his head had (nearly) come off:
It was a mistake any wizard could make Who was tired and caught on the hop One piffling error, and then, to my terror, I found myself facing the chop. Alas for the eve when I met Lady Grieve A-strolling the park in the dusk! She was of the belief I could straighten her teeth اگلے moment she'd sprouted a tusk. I cried through the night that I'd soon put her right But the process of justice was lax; They'd brought out the block, though they'd mislaid the rock Where they usually sharpened the axe. اگلے morning at dawn, with a face most forlorn, The priest کہا to try not to cry, "You can come just like that, no, آپ won't need a hat," And I knew that my end must be nigh. The man in the mask who would have the sad task Of cleaving my head from my neck, کہا "Nick, if آپ please, will آپ get to your knees," And I turned to a gibbering wreck. "This may sting a bit" کہا the cack-handed twit As he swung the axe up in the air, But oh the blunt blade! No difference it made, My head was still definitely there. The axeman he hacked and he whacked and he thwacked, "Won't be too long", he assured me, But quick it was not, and the bone-headed clot Took forty-five goes 'til he floored me. And so I was dead, but my faithful old head It never saw fit to desert me, It still lingers on, that's the end of my song, And now, please applaud, یا you'll hurt me.
4.While most of the Hogwarts students call him "Nearly Headless Nick," he prefers the مزید formal "Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington" یا "Sir Nicholas." But, Harry also calls him Nick. 5.Nick's death was the same دن as Lily and James Potter's, October 31st, but different years. Although Nick claims that he has never been guilty of cowardice in his life, he also claims to have broken down sobbing when they told him that he would die. 6.He also admits to not being as brave as Sirius Black; Nick chose to become a ghost because he feared death, but Sirius would have "gone on" in Nick's own words. 7.He does not like Ron because he is always reminding Nick that he is dead. 8.It is unknown as to how he recovered from petrification سے طرف کی the Basilisk since he is unable to drink potions. 9.Professor Dumbledore explains in his notes on "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot" that muggle executions of wizards such as Sir Nicholas are rarely successful, دیا that wizards can magically protect themselves and escape. Sir Nicholas had his wand taken away, however, and was unable to leave his dungeon cell. As of yet, Nick is the only one of the four house ghosts to have a speaking role in the films.
For some, it was TMI -- for others, too little. J.K. Rowling's epilogue to the "Deathly Hallows" may have actually caused مزید debate than the rest of the book, simply for the who-ended-up-with-whom element, some of which we knew and saw coming, and others, like Draco gets married?! And spawns?! that we still can't get behind. But for Luna Lovegood and Cho Chang, یا at least, the actresses who play them, they're quite happy with their happily-ever-afters -- even if Jo didn't see fit to give us all the details in the actual book itself.
"We do know what happens with Luna," Evanna Lynch کہا when...
1. Tell her Ron proposed to Lavender in Madam Puddifoot's.
2. Tell her McGonagall کہا that her مجموعی طور پر OWL results would have been a T, but they decided that would have been an insult to trolls.
3. Frequently inquire as to why she is wasting time knitting all those woolly bladders and leaving them lying around the common room.
4. When آپ ask why she's angry with Pansy Parkinson, and she tells آپ it's because Pansy just compared her to a chipmunk, act confused and say: "But why are آپ so upset? I thought آپ valued honesty in others?"
5. Whenever something in Hogwarts isn't working properly,...
