Helen McCrory Back as Narcissa for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

There is a small new mention today of actress Helen McCrory who will be seen as Narcissa Malfoy, mother of Draco, wife of Lucius and sister to Bellatrix Lestrange in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In the know columnist Baz Bamigboye for the Daily Mail reports that Helen and the other Helen, Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix) had some fun while filming for HBP, noting " the pair enjoyed scaring fellow cast members and giving the crew a double fright." The brief article also states that indeed that acclaimed stage actress McCrory will return in her role as Narcissa for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Readers will recall of course, the dramatic and pivotal decision Narcissa makes at the end of the book. Quotage from The Daily Mail: "Ms McCrory will also feature in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, which is shooting until next year  -  although she will find time this summer to portray Cherie Blair opposite (as this column revealed) Michael Sheen as one T. Blair, plus Dennis Quaid and Julianne Moore as Bill and Hillary Clinton, in Peter Morgan's The Special Relationship."

she is so. not. Narcissa.
which has always been my opinion.. though i would be interested in seeing her as Bellatrix, it’s too bad that casting didn’t work out!

sorry, don’t know where that came from.
I love that scene so much with the hair sheilding harry’s face and her nails digging into his chest etc. so well written. it portrays her desperate emotions beautifully. i hope mcrory can do it justice.

Guess That Book

A grim smile twisted his lopsided mouth. "Oh if there's one thing I hate," he muttered, more to himself than to Harry, and his magical eye was fixed on the left-hand corner of the map, "it's a Death Eater who walked free..."
