J.K. Rowling has written a new entry for Pottermore on one of her “favorite ‘off-stage’ characters in the whole series,” Celestina Warbeck.
The 500-word biography shares never-before-known facts about the “the Singing Sorceress,” including details on “Celestina’s early years, career highlights and tumultuous personal life.” Though we never actually “meet” Celestina in the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling says that the singer has been part of Harry’s world “since its inception.” Celestina’s namesake, Rowling reveals, was one of her own colleague’s at Amnesty International. “‘Celestina’ was simply begging to be scooped up and attached to a glamorous witch,” the author writes.
With the entry comes an audio recording of one of Celestina’s hit songs, “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart,” which is performed daily in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort.
