JK Rowling hints at more books

JK Rowling has confirmed she is considering writing more books about the wizarding world - but they will not feature Harry Potter.

Speaking at at the premiere of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallow Part I, Rowling said: "If in 10 years time I wanted to do another one I probably would. However, I said to Dan [Radcliffe] I don't think there will ever be another book with Harry as the central character. So Dan can sleep easy."

The writer added that she loved the films and said of the new instalment: "This is my favourite of the lot."

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, said he thought the new film would shock fans.

He said: "I think they'll be quite shocked. A lot of characters die and it's quite scary. The whole world [of Harry Potter] is darker."

Leicester Square was transformed into a dark, smoke-filled crypt for the premiere with gravestones, mystic symbols and burning torches.

Death Eaters - mysterious cloaked figures wearing masks - patrolled the red carpet where fans waited for hours in the cold and rain to see the stars.

Deathly Hallows Part 1 is being released in UK cinemas on November 19.
