Update: Originally posted in small form back in November, there is a larger unmarked photo online tonight of actress Dame Maggie Smith in her role as Professor McGonagall from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. You can see this photo, here.
Thanks to ScarPotter!
I’m glad they’ve got some new clothes for the teachers to wear! I’m sick of seeing them in the same costume film after film! Don’t they ever change, or wash their clothes?? :)
Great picture of Dame Maggie Smith. She really is perfect in the role of Professor McGonagall.
I really hope that she’s given more airtime in the Deathly Hallows movies. Her scenes in that book were some of my favourites: confronting Snape, challenging Slughorn, defending the school and students, fighting Voldemort, when Harry stands up for her against the Carrows, and the emotional moment when she belives Harry died. The moment she screams “NOOOOO” just has to be in the movie. I pictured the gravitas with which Dame Smith would handle those scenes.
I too hope she is recovering from cancer. Has anyone else heard anything?
Is there any word how she is doing? She is one of my favorite actresses, not just in HP.
And I love that picture, btw. I’m curious to see where it falls in the film.
Good old maggie! I love minerva, she’s really perfect, thsi picture is interesting, i’m sure it is the opal necklace she is looking at as it corresponds witht he picture of snape and minerva and the trio. Can’t wait for the movie!….
Her interpretation of Minerva is just how I first imagined McGonagall when I read the first book ( and, believe me, the wonder of a seven-year old is pure and sincere). She does perfectly well the brisk manners typical of Minerva.
Anyway, I didn’t know she has cancer. I really really hope she’ll be better and sound soon.
I’m sorry if there are errors, I’m italian.
I almost think you can see the necklace when you look at the desk close up.
At first I would have thought this was post-Dumbledore’s death, but it’s snowing outside…. which would make it the wrong time of year. At least, it LOOKS like it’s snowing, it’s kind of hard to tell but I’m just guessing….
She’s great as McGonagall, i’ve always thought she was just right for the part
Maggie Smith is looking, well, sicker? It’s nice to see her back though, she’s an amazing actress and perfect for the McGonagal role.
And we still don’t know why there’s a piano there…
I love Maggie Smith, I think she’s perfect for McGonagall.
Can’t wait for HBP!
Professor McGonagall looks so sad, I love Maggie! She’s such a great actress!
I love Maggie Smith, she’s so perfect for Professor McGonagall! I’m so excited about the pictures, can’t wait to see her in the movie!
Maggie Smith is fantastic. Great actress.
