Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, is set to receive the Variety UK Personality Award from the British Independent Film Awards for her "contribution to the industry after film adaptations of her books have proved massive hits."
According to BIFA:
At the source of one of the greatest creative successes in the history of film, the Harry Potter phenomenon, you'll find a U.K. author: J.K. Rowling. Rowling's internationally-beloved works are the starting point of the U.K. film community's role in the Potter film phenom, continuing with the producers, the production locations, services, facilities, creative wizards and of course, the cast. To celebrate Rowling is to also celebrate the vitality of this magic-making community.
The awards will be presented in London on Tuesday, November 30th.
