TIME reached out to a bunch of Harry Potter stars to wish Rowling a happy birthday. The message, they unfortunately noted, were not delivered by owl. Here are a couple of my favorites:
The Happiest of Birthdays, Jo. A breeze for the supreme Time-traveller. Love from Alan Rickman
Imelda Staunton (in character):
Dear Miss Rowling, On the occasion of your birthday I trust you will be clothed in delicious pink garments surrounded by plates of purring kittens. These wishes come By order of Dolores Umbridge.
Happy Birthday! Jo. You don’t look a day over 40; everyone knows what a wonderful writer you are, and how much you did to get children to read books, and your charity work, but they perhaps don’t know that in private you are very very funny. Perhaps you could celebrate your half century by writing a hilarious film. Perhaps, starring, I don’t know, a large Scottish man. Have a great day, you so deserve it, all my love, Robbie C. XX
David Thewlis (with all the sass):
Felicem Diem natalem, Jo and welcome to the happiest decade. Now isn’t it about time you did something with your life? xxx
Oliver and James Phelps:
Happy Birthday Jo!!! Thanks to your brilliantly creative mind and humor, my life has been far beyond anything I’d every thought possible. Have an amazing day & watch out for any “Puking Pastilles.” Much love. Oliver Phelps. Happy Birthday Jo, I hope you have a great day. Mischief managed. James x
Katie Leung, Rupert Grint, Matthew Lewis, Sean Biggerstaff, Frances de la Tour, Mark Williams, Chris Columbus, Clemence Poesy, Jason Issacs, Evanna Lynch and Natalie Tena also left some lovely and funny messages, so definitely check out the full compilation for some Harry Potter feels! I especially love Lynch’s message as she talks about fangirling the first time she met Rowling with “appropriate jumping/squealing/hyperventilating” as any of us would.
I was going to post a picture of our West Highland Terrier commiserating with me early this morning because in dog years I’m dead. — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) July 31, 2015
Happy Birthday Jo, we love you!
