Emma Thompson (Trelawney in POA and OOTP) recently gave two interviews to coincide with the release of her new movie, Stranger than Fiction. Newsweek asked how her daughter has reacted to her being cast in the Harry Potter films. "I'm in big with my daughter. In fact, I'm taking her to the set at half term. So I'm in with her and her friends... It's a great threat to have. 'I will not take you to the premiere. I will not give you Daniel Radcliffe's number.'"

The actress also told USA Today that roles in child-oriented movies, like Harry Potter and Nanny McPhee, "are very rich and fun to play." Additionally, on facing off with Imelda Staunton (Umbridge) in Order of the Phoenix, Thompson said: "We were playing something that was very cross comedy and tragedy."
