Magic Beyond Words, which is currently being shot in Vancouver, Canada, will debut on America's Lifetime channel later this year (11), and director Paul Kaufman insists Rowling's rags-to-riches story will shock a lot of Potter fans.

He explains, "This is a woman who decided to persevere... She was on welfare... and she really hit rock bottom."

Montgomery, who has adopted a British accent for the role and will even wear blue contact lenses to resemble the writer, admits she's a big fan and wouldn't know what to do if Rowling decided to pay a visit to the set.

She tells Access Hollywood, "I'd turn into a puddle of water."
