grew up in the Highlands of Scotland in the early twentieth century and was educated at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After graduation, she spent two years working at the Ministry but later secured a teaching post in the Transfiguration department at Hogwarts. Minerva remained on terms of friendship with her old boss at the Ministry, Elphinstone Urquart. Eventually the pair would marry and live in a cottage in Hogsmeade until his accidental death three years later.
Minerva, unable to bear remaining alone in their cottage, returned to her sparse stone-floored bedroom in Hogwarts Castle.
Lena is one of my favorite persons. And she (in life) is so funny and so smart, such a good person, a good friend and a good mother. I think everyone on that set and anyone who comes in contact with her develops an instant crush. Talk about male or female, you’re going to get a crush on her easy. And I was just lucky that I got to work with her and hit it off and continue being friends. – Pedro Pascal
