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.

Hmm. I hate to go completely against the grain, but I’m not a huge fan of Emma Thompson. I agree that she is talented, and the moment in Hogwart’s square when Umbridge tried to give her the boot was quite impressive, but, I just don’t dig her vibe, really. Something about her rubs me the wrong way. Don’t know what it is.
Count me among those who wish she would be back, even tho Trelawney’s part in DH is next to meaningless (altho I think she conks Greyback with one of her crystal balls, which is never a bad thing). Just the reappearance of each of these original cast members is going to be a pleasure.
I do wish Thompson is in the DH because I love the scenes involving Trelawney (in all the books/movies). However, I dislike Thompson because of her attitude. As terrible as it is, I am kind of 50/50 on if I want this to be true.
Noz- Pointing out misspellings in the article once is okay (good even so they can correct it), but making a second comment about is just obnoxious and rude. Sheesh! Why are you eager to prove you “better” than someone else?
