Yesterday, actress Emma Thompson (Professor Trelawney) received the 2, 415th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the Pig n' Whistle pub in Los Angeles, California.  Leaky was on the scene, and was able to capture a number of images of the actress at the event.  These images, along with others from the wire services, may be found in our Image Galleries right here.  In addition to Emma Thompson, actor, and longtime friend, Hugh Laurie and "Nanny McPhee Returs" costar Maggie Gyllenhaal were also on hand to introduce the actress, as well as speak to her career, abilities, and personal relationships.  The star, situated as the very last thing a patron steps on before entering the pub, and the first thing upon exiting, was "fitting" according to Thompson.

Additional photos and video will be online shortly.  Stay tuned!

Pity she didn’t mention her work in the HP Films when she was on Leno last night.

Congratulations Emma.

She’s a very accomplished actor and deserves her star. I’m sure, in time, that other HP actors will receive their stars if they continue down the same path.

Well done, and well deserved, Emma! I have always enjoyed watching her in any movies! A star near a pub… that’s pretty funny!
