Emma Thompson on why she passed on Trelawney Emma Thompson on why she passed on Trelawney

emmathompsonEmma Thompson, Professor Trelawney in the Harry Potter films, has squashed rumours that there was any bitterness in her decision to appear in a Nanny McPhee sequel instead of reprising her role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The two films have a conflicting filming schedule, forcing Thompson to make the choice.
