I just looked at a few pictures of her and she looks WAY to nice to play Neville’s grandmother. They are going to have to do a lot of work with make up and wardrobe to make her the scary and critical Augusta Longbottom. She looks so nice to be so mean. Of course, I used to NOT get a chill when I would see Helena Bonham Carter so we know they can!

I think it’s fantastic they are including Mrs Longbottom !! I had always pictured Judi Dench in that role though …

I don’t remember Neville’s gran being in book 7 but it has been awhile since I have read the book, sadly enough.
