I LOVE Maggie Smith. She is the embodiment of Minerva McGonagall. I hope her cancer is better.

So much sadness in her eyes, I guess this is after you know who death.
Great actress, I hope she has more screen time in hbp, a good character and actress to show us the sadness after the “main event” of hbp.

I think you’re right this the desk with the necklace

Maggie Smith is perfect for this role. I struggle to think of a better suited actress. I’m excited to see her scenes in Half-Blood Prince.

Haven’t we seen this picture before? I know i have seen the desk before and seen mcgonagall before in this poise.

This is after katie bell touches the necklace. You can see the box that they put the necklace in laying on the desk.

Posted by Emily on January 26, 2009, 07:08 PM report to moderator

yes everyone it is an old picture, but this is like a “official” one maybe?

Lovely to see Maggie back!

My money is on this being after the events atop the Astronomy Tower . . .

I love Maggie Smith, and I cant wait to see her in HBP. However, there’s just something about this picture thats…I’m not sure, I just dont love it. It feels sad. But she still looks amazing, only a few more months to wait :)

love old Maggie! She really is great, and perfect as McGonagall. How great is that we have a Dame like Maggie and Knight like Sir Michael Gambon at the helm of Hogwarts? Terriific.
