"You tell somebody you play Quidditch you'll typically get asked one of two things: One is, 'Do you really fly?' and the other one would be 'Wait, how does the snitch work? Do you have a flying golden ball?'"
"If people got into it because of Harry Potter then that's fine but it's really not about that anymore."
