BBC Interview with Fiona Shaw
August 14, 2010, 08:11 PM
BBC News has put up a short interview with Fiona Shaw (Aunt Petunia), where she talks about a range of subjects such as "her childhood in Ireland, what makes good theatre, how she learnt to
recite epic poem The Waste Land by TS Eliot, and why Fiona Shaw is not
her real name." Towards the end of the interview Shaw makes a very brief comment on her work on Harry Potter, saying that she likes "being funny as much as being in serious things."

Even though I really don’t like the character of Aunt Petunia, I still think she did a great job as an actress in that part. The best actors sometimes have to work with the most difficult characters. Great job Fiona!!! :-)
Great interview!!! I like the 5 minute format, and…
I loved the shoes as well :-)
I really enjoyed that, I’d like to go for a pint with her. And I don’t think Aunt Petunia was necessarily a difficult character (well certainly not by Shaw’s standards the amount of incredibly complex and difficult characters she’s played on stage over the years)
