Jim Dale, a 71 year-old veteran Broadway actor is the voice all the Harry Potter audio books. He has already recorded the audio for the last book- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, written by J K Rowling.
Yes, he knows everything about what happens in the supposedly last books of the Harry Potter series.
He is one of the few who know before the final book releases on July 21.
Jim's grandchildren went mad in trying to get the secret from him. Even his wife doesn't know. Jim signed a non-disclosure agreement before reading the audio text of the final book.
Jim says that it is only better that children find the end for themselves. Revealing the plot would be like giving a surprise gift to a child and saying the surprise gift is a bicycle, he says.
Jim does reveal a clue. It is a surprise ending.
Thank you Jim. We needed that.
