Emma Thompson to Return as Trelawney in "Deathly Hallows" Film?

An interesting bit of information has been published in the the April issue of Tatler magazine, regarding the possible return of actress Emma Thompson as the character of Professor Trelawney in the final "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film.  An interview with Celemence Posey, who portrays the character of Fluer in the Harry Potter films, contains a brief mention of Ms. Thompson when Miss Posey relates her feelings on recognizing people she admires.  The magazine, scans from which can be found here care of, says:
"But in Paris, she adds, 'the French are too snob' to admit to recognising anyone. 'And I'm proud of that!' So proud that when Emma Thompson -- a heroine of hers -- was in make-up for Harry Potter the other day and she felt a goosepimply 'Aaaah!', she 'didn't say anything. Because I'm French! I won't admit it!'"
As readers will recall, Emma Thompson has stated she will not be retuning for the "Deathly Hallows" films. Official confirmation has yet to come from WB regarding this casting rumor.

I love Professor Trelawney in the films. She does such a good job and it would be great if she was in a little bit of the battle scenes.

I hope this is true. I really can’t see anyone else playing Professor Trelawney.

At the risk of repeating what pretty much everyone has said already, I sure hope that it’s true and she will return for DH. Emma Thompson is Trelawney, I cant imagine anyone else starring as her instead of Emma Thompson so, I sure hope that she will come back for DH.

I’m not so sure about this. Just sounds like the journalist has paraphrased her, they could have met on GOF… but wait a minute! Thompson wasn’t in GOF… hmmm interesting!

I too loved the scene in the book where Trelawney is hurling crystla balls at Death Eaters! It would be a shame if they don’t have her character inthe final scenes.

Yeah, let’s see Emma Thomson weilding magic 8 balls at Death Eaters! But I think it’s unlikely she’s coming back.
