Vanity Fair as an interview online with actress Kelly Macdonald, from the current HBO series "Boardwalk Empire," which makes note of her appearing as the Grey Lady in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" film.  The magazine reports:

Next thing I find out, she’s got a small part as the Raveclaw house ghost in the final Harry Potter film. 
John Lopeez: I hear now that Boardwalk’s done, you’re working on the final Harry Potter as we speak. They really are trying to get every U.K. actor into those movies.
Kelly Macdonald: It’s true! I’m friends with Colin Firth, and he told me he’s the only Brit who’s not in it. 
While this is not yet explicit confirmation of Ms. Macdonald's role as the Ravenclaw Ghost in the second part of the final Potter film, Leaky is working to confirm this report.  

As fans of Ms. Macdonald's work will know, the actress has worked previously with "Deathly Hallows" director David Yates in the 2005 HBO film "The Girl in the Cafe."  This film featured the actress working alongside actor Bill Nighy, who portrayed Rufus Scrimgeour in "DH: 1."

Ooh, I hope this is true! I really like her, and I was very afraid they were going to cut that whole angle of the story since it seems to me that Ginny will have to be the one to lead Harry to the Diadem (due to the way it was set up in the HBP film), not Luna taking him to the Ravenclaw common room and all that.

I agree with ‘Headmistress LemonFaerie’ i think that it will Ginny who will have to take him to the Daidem since Harry had his eye closed in HBP movie when she hid it…so i’d be interested to see how they introduce the Grey Lady as a character=]

I’m glad they kept this part of the story because it just shows how every freakin thing in the potter universe happens for a reason, and everyone is tied together somehow… But the Grey Lady was shown in the Philosopher’s Stone film, not very much but she was there… They should bring back the same actress then, shouldn’t they? They also replaced the Fat Lady for the 3rd film, which I think is so annoying that they do. It doesn’t make any sense that things keep changing like that…
