The always fabulous Imelda Staunton is the subject of a new profile in the Daily Mail. In the new interview she remarks on her return performance as the horrible ex-Professor Umbridge and her reign of (interrogation) terror in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, noting:

“Now, that is a great role,’ she says with relish. ‘It was wonderful
playing this baddie dressed in pink, and to be able to play her again
is a real treat.’

Her first Harry Potter was in 2007. Did it change her life? No, not really. I don’t get chased down the street by hordes of kids. I still live a very normal life. ‘The
one good thing is that I get a lot more good scripts coming through my
letterbox. Vera Drake raised my profile in one way, and then Harry
Potter in another.’
