Emma Thompson (Sybill Trelawney) is to receive the 2,415th star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Friday, 6th of August. Thompson will speak in front of the Pig 'n Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard, joined by "House" star and fellow University of Cambridge graduate Hugh Laurie. Maggie Gyllenhaal, who stars alongside Thompson in "Nanny MacPhee and the Big Bang" - distributing as "Nanny MacPhee Returns" in the USA - will also speak at the late morning ceremony.

Thompson has won two Academy Awards, the first for Best Actress for her role in "Howards End" and the second for Best Adapted Screenplay for "Sense and Sensibility", in which Thompson also starred. The actress first played Sybill Trelawney in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and is currently working on a new adaptation of "My Fair Lady."

Thanks to HPANA for the heads up!

WOW Emma Thompson deserves to have a Star on the Walk of Fame!!
She was AWESOME in the Harry Potter Movies, and I hope to see her in Deathly Hallows when she throws down the Crystol Ball that lands on Firir Greybacks head!!! and stops him from biting Lavendor Brown!!! I hope they include that scene!!! lol
I have also seen Nanny McPhee and loved the Movie, and she is also AWESOME in the role as Nanny McPhee!!

Sense and Sensibility has sooo many HP actors in it. Awesome movie! (And as an aside, Hugh Laurie was also in that film. I wish he could be in an HP movie, but I guess it’s not gonna happen.) Sigh.

Very nice. Though having seen how grimy that area of Hollywood is, I’m never sure how much of an ‘honor’ it really is! ;-) But good onya, Emma!!!

She’s a great actress I’ve never liked Trelawney, but Emma does it so well I forget how much I lover her previous rolls. Congrats Emma Thompson!
