Staunton To Play Evil Professor

British actress IMELDA STAUNTON will play the part of PROFESSOR DOLORES UMBRIDGE in HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX.

The fifth book in JK ROWLING saga sees Professor Umbridge come to Hogwarts to spy on Headmaster ALBUS DUMBLEDORE and to torture HARRY POTTER.

The VERA DRAKE star will have to turn herself into the evil Professor, described in the book as "a short squat woman bearing an uncanny resemblance to a toad".

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix will start filming early in the new year (2006) and will be directed by DAVID YATES.

I think she's the perfect choice. She might be beautiful, but wait till they make her up in makeup and foam! Then she'll be miserable and won't mind being a little evil! I can see that her facial makeup would be resembling to that of Dolores Umbridge. Besides, Judy Dench is not that short!
