Fat Lady

Did anyone notice that the fat lady had an actress change?
the one who played in the first one was Elizabeth Spriggs while the one plays in PoA is Dawn French. i just realized this while watching it the other night.
which do you prefer?

Re: Fat Lady

I noticed the change! I prefer Dawn French as the Fat Lady. She is sometimes funny, and gave the Fat Lady a lovely horrible singing voice!

Re: Fat Lady

Yep I did! I think I liked Dawn better, but then again, I never did get a chance to warm up to the first one.

Kinda like the Dumbledore situation.

Re: Fat Lady

Watched this film last night for the first time in ages. Has anyone else noticed that when the fat lady is trying to break the glass, there is a portrait of a knight behind Harry and co who you can hear? Only just noticed that.

I believe that's Sir Cadogan. Scenes with him were filmed as him being the replacement for the Fat Lady after she was attacked, but they were ultimately cut...

Violet was the Fat Lady's friend wasn't she? Imagine if she was played by Jennifer Saunders, we'd have a French and Saunders skit in a Harry Potter movie :D
