Actress Michelle Fairley cast as Mrs. Granger

The role of Hermione Granger's mom in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has been filled by actress Michelle Fairley, Coleraine Times reports:

The Coleraine actress's agent was contacted by film representatives last week to arrange a new schedule of shooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Michelle had almost missed out on the part due to her involvement in Brian Friel's Olivier award-winning play Dancing at Lughnasa which opened at the Old Vic in London last Thursday.

However producers for the blockbuster have insisted that they want Michelle to play the part of Mrs Granger, a Muggle dentist and the mother of Hermione Granger, one of Harry's two best friends, played by Emma Watson.
