There is a report online via SnitchSeeker noting that actress Ninette Finch has been cast as Neville's grandmother, Augusta Longbottom, in the forthcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film. Mrs. Finch is quoted as saying:
Yes I am playing Augusta Longbottom although it is not a very big part... I have also played a couple of witches and was one of the people on the Millennium bridge when it was under attack.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" is set for release this November, while "Deathly Hallows: Part II: will arrive in theaters July of 2011.
I just looked at a few pictures of her and she looks WAY to nice to play Neville’s grandmother. They are going to have to do a lot of work with make up and wardrobe to make her the scary and critical Augusta Longbottom. She looks so nice to be so mean. Of course, I used to NOT get a chill when I would see Helena Bonham Carter so we know they can!
