HARRY Potter author JK Rowling has admitted she made a mistake in pairing Hermione Granger with her beau Ron Weasley.

She said Hermione and Harry Potter would have made a better match but said she made Ron and Hermione a couple “for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility”.

“If I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that,” she told Wonderland magazine.

In the interview Rowling admits she made an error in having Hermione marry Ron at the end of her seven-novel cycle.

“I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy,”

Rowling said she could “hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans” of her work and that she hoped she would not be “breaking people’s hearts with her revelations.
