March 23, 2010, 12:14 AM
An interesting bit of information has been published in the the April issue of Tatler magazine, regarding the possible return of actress Emma Thompson as the character of Professor Trelawney in the final "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film. An interview with Celemence Posey, who portrays the character of Fluer in the Harry Potter films, contains a brief mention of Ms. Thompson when Miss Posey relates her feelings on recognizing people she admires. The magazine, scans from which can be found here care of Clemence-Posey.org
"But in Paris, she adds, 'the French are too snob' to admit to recognising anyone. 'And I'm proud of that!' So proud that when Emma Thompson -- a heroine of hers -- was in make-up for Harry Potter the other day and she felt a goosepimply 'Aaaah!', she 'didn't say anything. Because I'm French! I won't admit it!'"
As readers will recall
, Emma Thompson has stated she will not be retuning for the "Deathly Hallows" films. Official confirmation has yet to come from WB regarding this casting rumor.

I’d love to see Emma Thompson back for DH as Professor Trelawney!!! She’s so brilliant!!! And it’s an important caracter for the plot, and I guess she should indeed play her part in the battle against Voldemort.
That would be awsome…
I absolutely hope so!! If it’s not Emma, NOBODY can do it! nobody else can fit that role in the first place, and especially not after she already set the standard for it. She is so incredible, I really really want her to be in the last one!
It’s CLEMENCE POESY (french word for poetry, but with a “Y” instead of “IE”). And FLEUR (means flower in english), by the way.
I absolutely love the part in the book where Trelawney is throwing crystal balls at the Death Eaters. I remember reading that the first time and thinking, “hey, she finally found a good use for those crystal balls!” I do hope that scene ends up in the movie.
It would be great it she was in the film but after she made she a big deal of announcing that she wouldn’t be in it I would be quite surprised if it turned out that she actually was (it would, of course, be a very pleasant one!). Perhaps the filming schedules originally clash between DH2 and Nanny McPhee (which I think is such a cute film).
