Severus Snape voted favourite Harry Potter character

31st August 2011

Severus Snape has been voted the favourite character from the Harry Potter universe in a new poll of 70,000 book lovers.

Earlier this year, Harry Potter fans were asked to cast a vote to determine the most popular character from the seven main books in the series, with Snape the clear winner after gaining a 20 per cent share of the votes.

Harry himself was only in fourth place, with his best female friend Hermione Granger in second and Harry's godfather Sirius in third.

Ron Weasley rounded off the top five and J. K. Rowling said it is no surprise that Harry's three closest companions featured so prominently in the public's voting.

However, the author revealed that her personal favourite character is Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts, who only made eighth place on the public's list.

'Now that I have finished writing the books, the character I would most like to meet for dinner is Dumbledore. We would have a lot to discuss, and I would love his advice; I think that everyone would like a Dumbledore in their lives,' she added.

Lord Voldemort, the main antagonist in the series, only featured in 17th place on the list, though he was significantly more popular than the Fat Lady in the Gryffindor portrait and Hagrid's dog, Fang, who only received one vote each.
