I have a lot of real life experience that I can draw on.

And I think it makes for a little bit more of an honest portrayal.

Harry Potter to me is a bore. His talent arrives as a gift; he's chosen. Who can identify with that? But Hermione - she's working harder than anyone, she's half outsider, right? Half Muggle.
