Rita Returns? Rumor Alert on Miranda Richardson Back for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Rumor Alert: Credible word has reached TLC that actress Miranda Richardson is in negotiations to reprise her role as scandal monger and Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore author Rita Skeeter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. TLC spoke directly to reps for Ms. Richardson today, and when asked if they could deny or confirm the report, was told several times "no comment." 

Readers will recall recently producer David Heyman told Empire magazine they are indeed still casting for the final films in the Harry Potter movies. As such, we must keep this new report about Ms. Richardson, who gave such a delightful performance as the nasty Rita in Goblet of Fire, firmly in the rumor category for now, until Warner Bros makes a formal announcement regarding the cast of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I hope this is true! She was amazing. I haven’t watched GoF in a while, but I seem to remember that the music was just perfect whenever she appeared. She’s just so creepy and cruel, yet hilarious and perfect at the same time.

I really, really, really, REALLY hope that Miranda comes back!! She was PERFECT as Rita in GOF!! I really want DH to be a big reunion, too, and I hope they bring back most, if not all, former cast members for this final movie. That would be AWESOME!

Why is she coming back and not Fleur? To me, Fleur has a bigger role in the final book than Rita.

@Spicefan78, Fleur’s not coming back for DH or is it Clemence Poesy who’s not coming back??? I hadn’t heard that. It doesn’t make sense not to bring Fleur back.
