JK ROWLING has admitted that Hermione Granger would have been much happier married to martial arts legend Jackie Chan.
The Harry Potter author said the character’s marriage to Ron Weasley was a mistake and would have led to mutual resentment, heavy drinking and repeated viewings of Rush Hour 2.
She added: “Hermione needed to be with someone on her level. She would have been dazzled by Jackie’s lightning-fast hands and his ability to jump on to tables.
“And even though I forced her to marry Ron, I like to think that at some point she would have had an affair with Jackie Chan.
“Or possibly Shaft.”
