Emma Thompson to Return as Trelawney in "Deathly Hallows" Film?

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, says:
"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.

Many thanks to Freya for mailing!

Maybe she’s going to have a larger role and they wanted it to be a surprise

I just want to see her chucking crystal balls at Death Eaters. That would make my day.

Talking with Miroca (she is here on MyLeaky), we realised that this could be good news to the Snape memories scene. They could use Trelawney to show Snape hearing her predicting Harry’s prophecy to Dumbledore… then show Snape giving the information to Voldemort… and, finally, justify why he felt guilty enough about Lily to help Dumbledore.
They need to explain Snapes motives somehow… and Emma Thompson being in the movie could point to a solution.

He he. You spelt Clemence like “Celemence” he he. Sorry, I had to point that out. I really hope she’s going to return because she said she wasn’t because she was doing Nanny McPhee. GO EMMA THOMPSON why doesn’t she look like Trelawny? She looks much better as she is without the HP makeup!

Actually, I don’t care if she’s in DH—it’s such a small bit—it was far more important, I think, for her to be in HBP telling Harry about Snape overhearing the prophecy. And, of course, she wasn’t (thanks WB).

I can’t imagine anyone else playing Trelawney…

If she is in there at all, if it’s not for more than “I’ve got more for those who want them” or whatever, I think it will just be a jarring distraction in the battle scene especially if the movies are supposed to be entertaining for people who haven’t read the books, or even seen all the films. I think it would be great to run little clips of the characters destinies over the end credits, but you don’t need new footage for that.

I hope she is back. I was so looking forward to seeing Professor Trelawney throwing crystal balls at Death Eaters!
