Picking up on 'Potter' clues

I need to start brushing up on my Harry Potter knowledge as we get closer to the release of "The Deahtly Hallows."

One of the best places for all things Potter is The Harry Potter Lexicon. This great online reference guide indexes evrey person, place and thing mentioned in the books -- no matter how seemingly trivial.

I bring this up because an article on Ain't It Cool News about the upcoming "Order of the Phoenix" movie included this juicy tidbit...
In the original draft of the screenplay for ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, they had decided to remove a character from the story. Rowling read over the screenplay and said “I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” that they were free to do whatever they liked, of course, but “if you make a 7th movie you’ll have tied your hands.”

No mention of which character J.K. Rowling was talking about. The filmakers are keeping that a secret.

The first one I thought of was Hagrid's half-brother Grawp. But who knows? Maybe Harry's old babysitter, Mrs. Figg? Feel free to post your own theories...

The TU blog for Harry Potter has revealed the character in question. I do not believe it is terribly spoilerish, as I am trying to avoid them at all costs.
