Emma Thompson Confirms Return as Trelawney in "Deathly Hallows"

Thompson Interviews

Earlier this week, we told you about an article in the Tatler in which Cleménce Poésy implied that Emma Thompson (Professor Trelawney) would be in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Thompson has confirmed in an interview with CBBC's Newsround that she will be reprising the role of the Divination teacher; when asked whether she knew if she would return for the last Harry Potter film, Thompson exclaimed, "I am, I'm in it, I've done it! I've already done it!" Quotage:

Interviewer: Why were people expecting that you weren't going to be in it?
Emma Thompson: I don't know, someone got a bee in their bonnet and said she's not doing it and that was completely false.
Interviewer: So we can confirm that you'll definitely in the final film?
Emma Thompson: I am in it, I've done two days on it and my sister's in it as well, actually! [Joking] And my next door neighbour. You're probably in it as well! If you look very carefully I'm sure you'll pop up somewhere.
The interview was otherwise devoted to promoting the upcoming "Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang," which will be released in the U.K. tomorrow, the 26th of March. Thompson wrote the screenplay and additionally stars as the main character. The actress commented on her enjoyment of working alongside a generally young cast who are "fully present and there," as well as her profound dislike of the process behind the Nanny McPhee mask. The interview on the CBBC website is only available to those in the U.K. and can be found at this link.

OH.MY.GOD. It is like a reunion!!!! Sooo perfect!!! Everyone is going to be in it! I just hope that the script will be fine and that they’ll manage to cover all the mistakes and especially the things that are missing from the previous films..

It’d be funny if she was throwing crystal balls at Helena Bonham Carter during the battle scenes!

Is the only part where she’s going to be is the Battle of Hogwarts? Or are there any extra scenes?

I’m glad! She is so perfect as Professor Trelawney and it would have been a huge hole in the Snape story arc not to have her there. And she’s going to be AWESOME in the Hogwarts Battle scenes! Can’t wait!

That is quite exciting. A bit off topic, but when do we get to find out who will play the young Lilly Evans? I would really like to know how they will portray her. Also young Snape?

Emma, you’re the one who Put the bee in the bonnet!


“No, no, no,” the Oscar winner insisted when we asked whether she’d be returning as Professor Sybil Trelawney in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. “I’m making my own ‘Nanny McPhee’ next year. They mean much more to me.”

Guess That Book

The hooded figure raised its head and looked right at Harry -- unicorn blood was dribbling down its front. It got to its feet and came swiftly toward Harry -- he couldn't move for fear.
