March 23, 2010, 12:14 AM
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
"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.
Many thanks to Freya for mailing!
Ah, a very nice rumor. Maybe it’s just a cameo and not a part. Nevertheless, if she showed, it would be very nice indeed.
It is not a rumour anymore, she IS in it, as I said in my previous post, they have the news on Mugglenet. There’s a link to an interview she did for Newsround in the UK. I’ve watched the interview there is absolutely no doubt about it at all! Squeeeee!
Thanks moglet. I’ve just watched the Newsround clip, and from what she says I think the ‘not being in the film’ only ever applied to Half Blood Prince – where they may have written a part and had to cut it – and not to DH; she talks as is there was never any doubt about it. She had finished maling the new Nanny McPhee before they needed her.
And she also reminds us that her sister Sophie is also in DH (as Mafalda Hopkirk) “and my next-door neighbour” – no idea who that is!!
