Let me start by saying that we aren’t talking about Daniel Radcliffe or the Harry Potter series itself. But, the character himself is, according to Elite Daily, turning 37!
“On July 31, 1980, the boy who lived, the chosen one, the savior of the wizarding world was born. That means Harry Potter would (be) 37 in 2017, on this day. (It should also be noted that Harry shares a birthday with his creator, J.K. Rowling, who turns 52 today.) I know, I know. If Harry Potter is 37, I guess that means we’re all adults now or something terrible like that. But don’t forget that the Harry Potteruniverse technically takes place in the past. Though the seventh book came out July 2007, the final battle at Hogwarts took place on Sept. 1, 1998. And, if you’re good at mental math, or if you’re a huge nerd like me who wrote it down in Google Calendar ten years ago, that means the Deathly Hallows epilog, “19 Years Later,” takes place in 2017.”
My mind is sufficiently blown.
