    I love her to, but her role is too small in the movies.

    Helen is amazing, but she's better as Narcissa. Helena is PERFECT.

    Can I also make a request for British stage and screen actor Alun Armstrong as Mundungus Fletcher please. Would be much appreciated.

    By the way when I did my initial cast list for OOTP and HBP both Annette and Bob appeared as Umbridge and Slughorn respectively. Great choice. However my choice for Narcissa was Jennifer Saunders

    Tim Roth was originally to be Snape, but he turned it down to be in a tim burton film.

    Kate Winslet as the grey lady. :)

    For me Kate Winslet is the best British actress of our generation
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 0
    I agree, greg. I love Kate Winslet. She's my favorite actress. And it's a shame she didn't make through the series.

    We'll never be forgiven for what we did.
    Trust me, I'm a Film Grad ;)
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    damn... i wish she got the role. Oh well.
  • greggreg Posts: 737 ✭✭✭
    She's the only actress who's able to make me cry (like in Titanic o_O)... she should have been Lily!

    Lily! Shed be perfect!
  • For DumbleDore, i probably would of wanted Ian McKellen if Harris and Gambon weren't cast...however in HBP Gambon looks ALOT like Gandalf lol

    Oooh, you should do David Thewlis as Quirrel, cause that's the role he auditioned for. And yeah, I agree with Kate Winslet as the Grey Lady, and Julie Andrews as McGonagall, even though Maggie Smith is perfect. Kate Winslet be much better than Kelly McDonald...'I know what he's done WITH DARK MAGIC!' -gun to mouth-

    That has nothing to do with it, there are many other great actresses out there, but that doesn't mean they would be good as Bella.

    Tim was in The Planet of the Apes. Kate's agent turned down the role.

    No, she wouldn't have. She doesn't fit the role at all... being a good actress doesn't mean anything if you don't fit the requirements, though she would have been good for The Grey Lady.

    Females can go by actor as well. It is acceptable either way.

    Yes! She is exactly who I pictured to play Umbridge! I think she would have been just as good on Staunton.

  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 7,344 ✭✭✭✭
    But I have to say I am really happy that Naomi Watts wasn't cast as Narcissa and that Helen got that role instead.
  • Lord_DarkeyesLord_Darkeyes Posts: 4,905 ✭✭✭✭
    I agree that Winlset wouldn't be that good for Lily.

    Winslet was actually offered the role of the Grey Lady, but her agent turned it down before she was even told about it.

    I think Winslet would have made a great Grey Lady. I wish he hadn't turned it down.
