[Y]ou could make a good case, couldn’t you, for Harry actually becoming mentally ill under all of the neglect and the abuse that the Dursleys heap upon him. And this is his whole kind of schizophrenic fantasy he has. That is not what I believe, I mean I don’t want to read that into it at all, but she was saying that and I suppose that in a sense that is true. He does go through this appalling time and then he’s rescued in the most magnificent way any child could possibly be rescued.
