Dear Imelda,
You are such an incredible actress… not only as the perfect Umbridge, but in the innumerable other movies that you have been in. You really nailed the part, and we fans really appreciate it. It’s a part that could have been exaggerated to the point of being ludicrous, but you played it just as it was written… sickly sweet, like poisoned honey. That giggle will haunt me for years.
Best wishes in all your endeavors, and I hope you have an amazing year.
Hope to see you in DH!

Your grateful fan,
Radish :)

I truly feel Emelda’s Umbridge was the stand out performance in all of the films. Best Wishes to her!

A very happy birthday, Imelda!! SHe was absolutely PERFECT as Umbridge, I honestly see her in my head sometimes when I reread OotP. She HAS to be in DH, she’s too excellent a villain not to be!

Harry couldn't believe it -- he was free. he rolled down the window, the night air whipping his hair, and looked back at the shrinking rooftops of Privet Drive. Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and Dudley were all hanging, dumbstruck, out of Harry's window.[br
