The Harry Potter community has suffered a great loss this week in the death of Stephenie McMillan, the set decorator on all eight Potter films. James Phelps, who portrayed Fred Weasley, tweeted a tribute to Stephenie earlier this evening:
McMillan was nominated for Academy Awards for her work on Sorcerer's Stone, Goblet of Fire, and both installments of Deathly Hallows. She worked on a number of other films during her illustrious career, and among the many awards and nominations she received was an Oscar for the 1996 film The English Patient. She was an irreplaceable part of bringing Harry Potter to life on the big screen, and she will be greatly missed by all of us who appreciated her set magic.
