#RIP James and Lily Potter is trending on what would be the 30th anniversary of the fictional wizards' death at the hand of Lord Voldemort. As hundreds of millions of readers and moviegoers know, Harry Potter?s parents were Gryffindor students in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who were subsequently forced into hiding due to a prophecy about their infant son. Author JK Rowling conceived of Harry Potter as an orphan to add dimension to his character and then in later drafts incorporated his longing for his dead parents after her own mother passed away.
