Symbolen Deathly Hallows togs från Masonic-symbolen.
I was staying at a friend's house, I'd been writing Potter for six months and I stayed up when everyone else had gone to bed because I was watching the movie The Man Who Would Be King. (...)
There was something quite extraordinary that I only realised about 20 years later, so it seems very appropriate to say it now in the context of this exhibition. The Man Who Would Be King for those who don't know, is a story with Sean Connery and Michael Caine in it and it's from an old Rudyard Kipling story. And the Masonic symbol is very important in that movie. And it was literally 20 years later that I looked at the sign of the Deathly Hallows and realised how similar they were.
When I saw the movie again and saw the Masonic symbol, I sort of went cold all over and I thought 'is that why the Hallows symbol is what it is?' And I've got a feeling that on some deep subconscious level, they are connected.
