Was John Lennon the Model for Harry Potter?


Oh I think so.

In honor of what would have recently been John Lennon’s 70th birthday (October 9—which my mother inexplicably remembered and brought up in conversation), I bring you this photographic investigation.

Tell me this is not what the adult Harry Potter would look like. Just try and tell me.

I’m just saying: crazy hair, round glasses, English, long nose.

Refer to a Mary GrandPré illustration, if you will.

And for extra fun, compare to an in-character photo of Daniel Radcliffe, the living face of Potterdom.

I just do not know where I get these flights of genius. I do not know.

    And not only the bespectacled look. Both of them are orphans (well, in English literature orphan is a popular character ) brought up by their aunts. Lennon’s mother died in the car accident, while Potter was told the same about his own parents. Leave alone the magical visions that Lennon depicts in his songs- flying Thestrals and talk…ing Hats are not much more unreal.
