The Daily Mail has released photos of actress Poppy Montgomery portraying author J.K. Rowling in the unofficial biopic, Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story.

In another article, The Daily Mail offered this description about the made-for-TV movie: “[Magic Beyond Words] will take in the author’s early years in the West Country and tell how Harry Potter was dreamt up during a train journey from Manchester to London.”

Lifetime will air the movie in America in late 2011.  Rowling has not authorized the television project.
