On Harry Potter & The Prisoner Of Azkaban...

"I decided that, since she was someone who saw into the future, she had to be someone who couldn’t see anything at all in the present. Like where she was going, her clothing, anything. I decided to dress her slightly differently, and had wonderful co-operation from my director and designer and everything."

She is also playing the title role in Nanny McPhee, her self-penned adaptation of the Nurse Matilda series by Christina Brand. Thompson plays a governess who uses magic to quell seven extremely naughty children, with Colin Firth in talks to play their father. Shooting starts on 1 April in London – surely the perfect date for any film with an element of comedy.
