Washington, May 9 : She might be starring in the Harry Potter movies, but English actress Julie Walters says that she hates JK Rowling's books of the same name.
Walters, who plays Molly Weasley in the movie adaptations of the boy wizard tomes, has admitted that she only flips through them to check her character is not killed off.
The actress said that she buys the books because of a survival instinct rather than a love of the stories.
"The funny thing was that a rumour went around once that I was an avid reader of the Harry Potter books and that I was always first in the queue when they came out," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"Not the case, I'm afraid. Someone caught me thumbing through one on a bookstand and all I was doing - I admit it - was checking whether or not J.K. Rowling, the author, had written my character out!
"It was pure self-interest. I got to the magic words 'Mrs Weasley', realised I wasn't going to be the impending corpse and put the book back on the shelf," she added.
