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.

Augusta will be a great character. I hope Ninette has a ball playing this doughty witch!

Oh yeah, Siena, Judi Densch would have been perfect as the formidable (NOT ‘mean’, cminmd, ‘formidable’ – there’s a difference; over critical, yes – mean, no) Madame Longbottom. I’m sure Ms. Finch will do a wonderful job, though. I just loved that bit in the RoR when Madame Longbottom goes off proudly to join Neville in the fighting.

I always pictured Patricia Routledge from Keeping Up Appearances as Mrs. Longbottom (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098837/)…I thought she’d be a scream as her, but I’m sure Ms. Finch will be wonderful also!
