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."

Very happy to hear about Kelly Macdonald for “The Grey Lady”. She’s one of the really good up-and-coming actresses. She’s wonderful in “Boardwalk Empire”.

I also loved her in “Trainspotting” and “Gosford Park”.

She was rumored to be playing her months ago. With this new quote, it’s pretty much confirmed to be true.

This is GREAT!
LOL! Poor Colin Firth! He’s right! They should have given him a role in HP! He’s a great actor!

She’s a great choice for the Grey Lady. One of my favorite indie films is The Girl in the Cafe. If you want to see Bill Nighy in a completely different role, this is the movie to check out. It’ll give you an idea of just how talented an actor he is.

I always have to chuckle at the “every British actor” being in the HP movies. There are plenty who aren’t – Hugh Grant, Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, to name a few. But HP does have quite a who’s who of British actors, all of them fabulous.

Yes all the filming is basically done, Kelly was at Leavesden working with Dan in the spring, maybe she’s been back recently for some green screen work.
