I happened to look at a photo of John Lennon today and noticed that he resembled Harry Potter.  Could J.K. Rowling have drawn inspiration from him when drawing the now-famous look of her protagonist?  John Lennon could have portrayed a middle-aged Harry Potter in a future book never to be written, or perhaps he could have been a close relative.  We’ll never know.  But he sure looks like Harry Potter–an older version.
