K Rowling has said she “loves the idea” of writing “Avada Kedavra” – the Harry Potter death curse – on missiles bound for the Kremlin’s troops in a Zoom call with a Russian prankster who passed himself off as Volodymyr Zelensky.
Ms Rowling was the latest victim to fall foul of Vovan and Lexus, a Russian duo known for their prank chats with prominent leaders and public figures, including Boris Johnson, Prince Harry and Elton John.
Though the conversation between Ms Rowling and the pranksters started out on serious topics, throughout the 12-minute call their questions became increasingly bizarre.
“By the way, I ordered that our fighters write ‘Avada Kedavra’ on the missiles that we will launch in Donetsk and Luhansk, so how do you like this joke?” one of the pranksters said.
“I love the joke, I love the joke, I really do,” Ms Rowling appeared to reply in a clip posted online, although a spokesperson for the author said the video had been edited and was a “distorted representation” of what happened.
