Few franchises can boast of having achieved the popularity that Harry Potter has. The JK Rowling’s literary franchise it received a huge film adaptation that spanned as many as eight movies where we got to see numerous performers go by. Now, one of them has recognized that she has not marked her role in the saga.
We are talking specifically about Miriam Margolyes, better known in the magical universe as Professor Sprout of Herbology. In an interview with Vogue UK, the actress notes that “for me, Harry Potter was not important. I was very happy to get the role and I really enjoyed participating and meeting all the people, but he is not Charles Dickens.”
Margoyles notes that their participation “doesn’t mean as much to [ella]” in comparison with the infantile and youthful audience that enjoyed the tapes when they were released. Of course, this thought It doesn’t stop her from being extremely grateful to all the fans. who support her and show her affection when they meet her.
“People come up to me and say, ‘I love you,’ and they want to hug me. And that’s wonderful,” says the actress. The truth is that her appearances were very limited in Harry Potter, since we could only see her in The secret chamber and The Deathly Hallows Part 2. It is not the first time that we have heard a cast member point out that he is not too fond of the series, as Zöe Wanamaker did the same with the premiere of the first film.
