Melyik valódi életű személy a Rita Skeeter karakter?

6

Néhány évvel ezelőtt olvastam, hogy Rita Skeeter (talán) valódi élő személyen alapult.

Azt hiszem, egy amerikai nő, aki mérgező tollal foglalkozik a híres családokról. Tud valaki segíteni nekem?

Senki, legalábbis nem szándékosan.

Az Edinburgh-i könyvfesztiválon 2004-ben folytatott interjúban megkérdezték, hogy Skeeter karaktere. Ez az a hely, ahol megtudtuk, hogy Skeeter megjelent a Philosopher Stone korai tervezetében, és azt is állítja, hogy Skeeter nem valós személyen alapul:

I love Rita. You know when Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron for the first time, in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone? Everyone says, “You’re back” and he realises for the first time that he is famous. In a very early draft, Rita, a journalist, was there and she ran up to him. For some reason she was called Bridget—I forget why. Anyway, she detained him too long in the Leaky Cauldron and I really needed to get him moving, so I thought that I would not put her there.

As I was writing book one, I was planning the rest, and book four was supposed to be where Harry’s fame became a burden to him. It really starts to weigh on him when he is exposed to the wider wizarding world so I thought that that would be the perfect place for Rita to come in. She was still called Bridget at the time.

I didn’t realise that by the time I wrote book four I would have met quite a lot of Ritas and people would assume that I was writing Rita in response to what had happened to me, which was not in fact the truth. However, I am not going to deny that writing Rita was a lot more fun having met a few people I had met. I actually quite like Rita. She is loathsome—morally, she’s horrible—but I can’t help admiring her toughness. She is very determined to do the job and there is something quite engaging about that.

Rengeteg ember kitalálta, hogy ki Skeeter alapul, de Rowling és kiadói következetesen azt mondták, hogy nincs szándékos inspiráció.

Ugyanebben az interjúban volt korábbi kérdés:

Are any of your characters based on real people?

The only character who is deliberately based on a real person is Gilderoy Lockhart.

Ő soha nem tárt fel , aki Lockhartra épült, bár a médiában találgatás van. Ha Rita Skeeter szándékosan valódi személyre épült, azt hiszem, elmondaná nekünk, hogy Skeeter valódi személyre épül, vagy hogy Lockhart nem volt az egyetlen - mivel ő titokban tarthatta a személyazonosságát. Nem látok okot arra, hogy a második idézetben közvetlenül hazudjon róla.

Ezt találtam a PotterDomain.webs.com címen:

Some have speculated that Rowling's fraught relationship with the press was the inspiration behind the character Rita Skeeter. However, Rowling noted in 2000 that the character actually predates her rise to fame: "People have asked me whether Rita Skeeter was invented [to reflect Harry Potter's popularity], but in fact she was always planned." "I tried to put Rita in Philosopher's Stone - you know when Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron for the first time and everyone says, "Mr. Potter you're back!", I wanted to put a journalist in there. She wasn't called Rita then but she was a woman. And then I thought, as I looked at the plot overall, I thought, that's not really where she fits best, she fits best in Four when Harry's supposed to come to terms with his fame.

Úgy hangzik, mintha csak az ötlete lenne, és nem alapozta meg senkit, a kutatástól (más oldalakat is kutatott). Tévedhetnék azonban.
