Yes. Right around the time the first movie came out, my voice broke at 14. Singing is literally everything to me and I was devastated and was always participating in the middle school musicals just so I could sing there was no choir there. I had nothing to turn to once my voice went out, then I watched the Harry Potter movie for the first time and was fascinated and also read the books. I started taking acting classes and participated in many plays until I was old enough to get a job to pay for voice lessons. Years later I earned my associates in theater and am getting my bachelors in Public Relations. So yes Harry Potter has impacted me in many positive ways!!!
