Emma Thompson talks Deathly Hallows, sister’s Potter role in new interview

In a new interview with MTV, actress Emma Thompson, who plays Professor Sibyl Trelawney in the Potter films spoke briefly about her involvement in Deathly Hallows.

“They [the scenes] were very quick,” she admitted of her two days on set. “I just had to do a bit of waving of a wand and a bit of ‘ooooo-ing’ over dead people, because of course they just had to fit absolutely everyone in.”

Thompson joked that the films have employed her entire family, including sister Sophie Thompson, who will play Ministry of Magic employee Mafalda Hopkirk.

“I’ve got a photo of her with Daniel [Radcliffe] dragging her off somewhere … so I don’t know what [they’re doing]; I haven’t seen it yet.”
