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 Clemence-Posey.org, 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 hope she comes back for DH, that would be really great. I just saw her in ‘Last Chance Harvey’ and loved her!

I hope she’ll be back.I have to admit,she is my least favorite character but she’s an important character as she was the one who made the prophecy.

Ooo. Wouldn’t that be great if is true? Though, I have no idea why Posey would lie about something like that. Unless, of course, she meant during her time on the GoF set, and not DH…

Thompson’s prior announcement suggested that it was her choice to abandon the role of Trelawney in favor of her own personal project. For that reason, I too am rather 50/50 on the possibility of her return, though I do expect that I will enjoy her work if she does.

I hope she does!! Her character would help tie everything up nicely, since she was the one to start it all.
