J.K Rowling Approves Death Scene Change

The conclusion to Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows hits theaters on July 15th and will be in 3D.

In an interview with Cine Premiere Mexico art director Andrew Ackland-Snow talks about the production changing the death scene to one of its pivotal characters.  Warning, the quote below is stock with spoilers. Ackland-Snow says:

We wanted to change a bit where Snape dies. In the book, he dies on the Shrieking Shack, and we wanted to get him out from, not a conventional interior, but from that kind of box, to do it in a more dramatic atmosphere. We asked J.K. if she agreed for that to happen in there, because we hadn’t really seen it before. We made a crystal house, and you can see what happens in the boat house from there – Are you listening Harry? -, but also the school is in flames…and she loved it. Besides, it’s a very romantic place to die. Snape dies in a extremely good way, I gotta say.

Ok, I have a question: where on the grounds of Hogwarts is there crystal house? I’ve read the books multiple times and I cannot remember reading about a crystal house. I also don’t remember Snape saying anything to Harry while he was dying.

While I don’t like changing things the fact that Rowling approved it doesn’t have me worried. Rowling has been very protective of the series and if she doesn’t like something she would speak up about it.
