Snape voted favorite Harry Potter character
Severus Snape has been voted the favorite character from the Harry Potter books with 70,000 votes being cast in the ballot, which had a 4% higher turnout than the last general election in the UK. Hermione Granger took second place.
Potter himself trailed in fourth – a woeful showing considering the books are called Harry Potter and the Something Something and not Severus Snape and Black Cloak of Grease or something similar. Sirius Black was third and Ginge was fifth. Hermione should have won – that’s only critical comment I can add to this crucial debate. The Guardian has the whole story.
(In the interest of fairness, I should also add that my household now has a hamster called Luna.)
