Který skutečný člověk je postavou Rita Skeeterové?

6

Před několika lety jsem četl, že Rita Skeeterová (možná) byla založena na skutečném živobytí.

Myslím, že to byla americká žena, která psala životopisné biografie o známých rodinách. Může mi někdo pomoci?

Nikdo, alespoň ne záměrně.

V rozhovoru na Festivalu knih v Edinburghu v roce 2004 byla položena otázka Charakter Skeetera. Toto je místo, kde jsme se dozvěděli, že se Skeeter objevil v raném návrhu filozofického kamene, a také tvrdí, že Skeeter není založen na žádné skutečné osobě:

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.

Spousta lidí si udělala odhad, na koho může být Skeeter založen, ale Rowlingová a její vydavatelé souhlasně tvrdili, že neexistuje záměrná inspirace.

Ve stejném rozhovoru se objevila důležitá otázka dříve:

Are any of your characters based on real people?

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

Je nikdy odhalena , na níž byl založen Lockhart, ačkoli v médiích existovaly nějaké hádky. Pokud by Rita Skeeterová byla záměrně založena na skutečné osobě, představovala by si, že nám to řekne - buď že Skeeter byl založen na skutečné osobě, nebo že Lockhart nebyl jediný - protože mohla zachovat tajemství této osoby. Nevidím žádný důvod, proč by se o tom měla přímo zabývat v druhém citátu.

To je to, co jsem našel, z PotterDomain.webs.com :

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.

Zní to, jako by měla jen tu nápad a nezakládala na někoho z toho, co jsem zkoumal (prozkoumal i jiné stránky). Mohl bych být špatný.
