Interview with Gilderoy
Before Chamber of Secrets.
Hello and welcome. I'm Hermione L. Black
and today we'll be talking with Mr. Gilderoy Lockhart.
Hermione L.B: Mr. Lockhart.
Gilderoy: Just call me Gilderoy.
Hermione L.B: Ok. Well, are the rumors
true? Are you really going to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts
School of Witchcraft and wizardry?
Gilderoy: Yes. They're all true. I cannot
wait to help those less able then me in the defense of Dark Arts.
Hermione L.B: Well, you are sure good
at it. I started to read 'Wanderings with-'.
Gilderoy: You did? What do you mean, you
'started' reading it?
Hermione L.B: I haven't finished reading
it yet. Well, I couldn't help noticing that in 1979 someone else seems
to have had the same experience with a werewolf.
Gilderoy: *uncomfortably* yes, well, 'um,
he probably tried to deal with the one that I did, But couldn't.
Hermione L.B: *suspiciously* Yes.
Gilderoy: Well, do you like it so far?
Do you have any of my other books? If you don't, I could give you some.
I'll even sign them for you.
Hermione L.B: *shakes her head hard*
Gilderoy: No? Well then perhaps-.
Hermione L.B: No! No thanks.
It's really ok Gilderoy. Anyway, what do you think about having
all those people mobbing you where ever you go?
Gilderoy: Well, one does get used to it
after a while. I have to keep a stack of signed photos with me at all
times. But, that's what you have to expect when you're internationally
famous like me.
Hermione L.B: What do you think about
Gilderoy: He's a bit of an amateur.
Hermione L.B: I think you're being a little
harsh on him. He did defeat He-who-must-not-be-named, after all.
And, lets face it, all you've done is defeat a werewolf and gotten rid
of a Banshee.
Gilderoy: Yes, well, I think that's impressive,
but I've done more things then he has.
Hermione L.B: You could put it that way.
But what do you plan to do after you're done with Hogwarts?
Gilderoy: After? I plan to start going
towards marketing my own hair care potions. Then Newt Scamander suggested
that we collaborate so he could have more detailed descriptions of dangerous
beasts. And, might I add, his books will sell better.
Hermione L.B: Yes you're probably right.
Are your books directed at younger people, older people? Or are they for
all age levels?
Gilderoy: I think they're for young and
old. However, the mass of people who buy my books are the ladies *gives
huge wink to the audience.
Hermione L.B: *rolls her eyes* Riiiiiiiight.
So, what do you do in you're spare time Gilderoy?
Gilderoy: I've started to write my next
book. It's called 'Magical Me' it's my autobiography. It's really quite
good if you ask me.
Hermione L.B: So what are you writing
Gilderoy: Well, I can't really say, can
I? But I will say this, it has a lot of different stories.
Hermione L.B: Well, I think that's all
the time we have today. Thank you Gilderoy.
Gilderoy: I loved being here. And ladies,
there will a photo signing in the living room. *everyone goes wild*
Hermione L.B: Gilderoy!
Gilderoy: Don't worry, I'll sign your
book before we're done.
Hermione L.B: I don't care! I don't want
your signature! I want you to get out!
Gilderoy: Don't worry. *Gives Hermione
a huge wink.*
Hermione L.B: *disgusted* Just go!
Hermione L.B: *flopping down into a chair*
Well that's it. Next time I'm going to do someone less celebrity-ish.
