Emma Thompson will NOT return as Professor Trelawney for Deathly Hallows films.
Nov 11, 2008
Actress Emma Thompson has given a new interview to MTV where she states she will NOT return in her role as Professor Trelawney for the remaining Harry Potter films. Instead she will be making a second Nanny McPhee film, noting “I’m making my own ˜Nanny McPhee’ next year. They mean much more to me.”
“The Harry Potters are great big franchises that are something I’m not
emotionally attached to or necessarily particularly creatively attached
to’ Thompson explained. “That’s more like doing a turn, whereas the
Nanny McPhees are something I’ve written. The art is in those films,
they’re very handmade, they’re something that’s very close to me. Those
are the ones I really care about.”
Thanks much to MTV for mailing!
