Have You Found A 'Flint'? 'Harry Potter' Editor On How Fans Shaped The Series
I'm not sure I've had the opportunity to point to MTV for a post before today. So Here It Is, News from MTV that, sadly, doesn't involve Music, or TV: Klein is what is known as a "continuity editor." It's her job to keep track of everything that happens in the series, to make sure things are consistent and the details are right. But the letters she gets from the fans sometimes help.
"It's like having 6 million copy editors checking your work," Klein said. "We really handle everything on a case-by-case basis, and we ask, for every letter, 'Have we dealt with this before? Is this a valid concern?' And some we fix ourselves, and others we talk to our British colleagues and J.K. Rowling."
