According to reader Dawn, Emma Thompson was on Michael Parkinson‘s chat show this past weekend and she spoke a bit about her role as Professor Trelawney:

[I was] channelling Alastair Sim as he sounded when he appeared as Miss Fritton, the headmistress of St Trinians, in the 1954 film “the Belles of St Trinians”.

You can see a picture of Sim in his role on the cover of the movie’s video tape.
