To Bitch, or Not to Bitch?
Daniel Radcliffe has come out and placed himself firmly on the pro-bitch side of the Harry Potter debate. Daniel is adamant that that Molly Weasley's famous "Not my daughter, you bitch!" line from her final fight with Bellatrix Lestrange should remain in the final film.
There are concerns over the use of the word due to the huge young fanbase of the franchise, but it seems that the stars of the show do not think that it will be detrimental to the audience.
Julie Walters, who plays Mrs. Weasley, agrees,saying "[Mrs Weasley] has one of the most famous lines in the books. Everyone wrote to me and said, 'I hope they're not going to take that out, are they?"
Personally, I hope that they keep the line in. It was so emotive in the novel, and if they take it out it will water down the force of emotion felt, making the whole scene fall flat...
