Harry Potter exists in real life. He’s a British boy, he has dark hair and a scar on his forehead. However, he doesn’t also go by the name Daniel Radcliffe.
When Tracy Shaw bore her first son in 1989, she named him Harry Potter. People thought he was named after Prince Harry and that’s what they called him in his childhood. When Harry turned 9, J.K. Rowling’s first book came out. His mother brought home a copy of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” without even thinking her son’s life would be changed forever from that day on.
Nowadays Harry has problems everywhere. He can’t get football tickets, fill job applications or go to the bank without feeling absolutely miserable. At first people don’t believe him and then they laugh and joke. Harry told the media he had to show his passport, driver’s licence and his bank card before his girlfriend believed he wasn’t lying about his name. Harry wishes Rowling never wrote the books.
When the first book got published, the author admitted Harry was her favourite name and Potter was the surname of a family of neighbours she really liked in her childhood.
