Emma Thompson Confirms Return as Trelawney in "Deathly Hallows"

Thompson Interviews

Earlier this week, we told you about an article in the Tatler in which Cleménce Poésy implied that Emma Thompson (Professor Trelawney) would be in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Thompson has confirmed in an interview with CBBC's Newsround that she will be reprising the role of the Divination teacher; when asked whether she knew if she would return for the last Harry Potter film, Thompson exclaimed, "I am, I'm in it, I've done it! I've already done it!" Quotage:

Interviewer: Why were people expecting that you weren't going to be in it?
Emma Thompson: I don't know, someone got a bee in their bonnet and said she's not doing it and that was completely false.
Interviewer: So we can confirm that you'll definitely in the final film?
Emma Thompson: I am in it, I've done two days on it and my sister's in it as well, actually! [Joking] And my next door neighbour. You're probably in it as well! If you look very carefully I'm sure you'll pop up somewhere.
The interview was otherwise devoted to promoting the upcoming "Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang," which will be released in the U.K. tomorrow, the 26th of March. Thompson wrote the screenplay and additionally stars as the main character. The actress commented on her enjoyment of working alongside a generally young cast who are "fully present and there," as well as her profound dislike of the process behind the Nanny McPhee mask. The interview on the CBBC website is only available to those in the U.K. and can be found at this link.

Thanks to MuggleNet for the heads up!

PLEASE let her be throwing the crystal balls! I laughed so hard at that part in the book. With so many deaths, that’s exactly the sort of comic relief we need!

It’s good that she’s back. I had a feeling she would return.

Actually, if you go back through the Leaky Archives, the story was that Thompson herself said she would be unavailable, due to the second McPhee film….clearly, that has wrapped up sooner than expected and her schedule cleared.
Mostly, I am glad that there will be an “all characters” reunion…after all Trelawney’s role in DH would translate into …30 seconds? And w/o the revelation about who overheard her prediction about Voldy and Harry in HBP, really there is no reason for her to appear except for a nostalgic reunion. Too bad there wasn’t a place for Kenneth Brannaugh in OotP, or a way to smuggle him into DH!
