Actress Imelda Staunton discusses her role as Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in a new article, where she describes the film to be ”...a very serious piece of work.” The actress also relates in the interview, her joy in playing both sides of Umbridge, being both ‘sweet and well-meaning as well as controlling and duplicitous.’ She goes on to note, the difficulty of some scenes to film, saying of one scene in particular:
