Imelda Staunton as Umbridge: Back in Pink for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The always fabulous Imelda Staunton is the subject of a new profile in the Daily Mail. In the new interview she remarks on her return performance as the horrible ex-Professor Umbridge and her reign of (interrogation) terror in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, noting:

 "Now, that is a great role,' she says with relish. 'It was wonderful playing this baddie dressed in pink, and to be able to play her again is a real treat.' 

Her first Harry Potter was in 2007. Did it change her life? No, not really. I don't get chased down the street by hordes of kids. I still live a very normal life. 'The one good thing is that I get a lot more good scripts coming through my letterbox. Vera Drake raised my profile in one way, and then Harry Potter in another.'

Gosh! I like her (as an actress), but I simply hate her when she’s Umbridge! >___< XD

Glad she is coming back… I was hoping they wouldn’t cut her out the film. :)

I eagerly await seeing her return; she was absolutely delectable and irresistibly odious as Umbridge.

As much as I loathe her character, I am happy Imelda Staunton is back to play her! She plays her so perfectly! Although, she’s not hideous the way that i envisioned Umbridge. LOL.
