Thesp joins cast as Professor of Divination

Emma Thompson has joined the ensemble cast of Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” currently shooting in the U.K. with helmer Alfonso Cuaron.

Thompson will play the ethereal and eccentric Professor of Divination Sybill Trelawney, known at Hogwarts’ School of Witchcraft & Wizardry for her somewhat questionable predictions.

Thesp stars opposite Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Alan Rickman and newcomers Gary Oldman (as Sirius Black), David Thewlis and Michael Gambon.

“I am very excited to work with Emma,” Cuaron said. “She brings such life and spirit to the characters she portrays. It will be exciting to see her as Trelawney.”

“Prisoner of Azkaban” is the third feature film adaptation in J.K. Rowling’s bestselling “Harry Potter” series. It will be released Stateside next summer.
