So I’m sitting around, working on my illustrations, and watching Harry Potter 3. And by “watching” I mean “kind of listening while occasionally glancing up, then rewinding because I missed something.” And while looking down at my Mac, I heard it. And the “it” I heard was the voice of Ms. Trunchbull.
Yes, Aunt Marge is played by the same lady who played Ms. Trunchbull in the magnificent 1996 children’s classic film Matilda.
Holy MOLY! The entire cast of MATILDA (1996) reunited. :D
Left to right, back row: One of the Million Dollar Sticky women, Brian Levinson (Michael Wormwood), Pam Ferris (Trunchbull), Jimmy Karz (Bruce Bogtrotter), and Leor Livneh Hackel (Julius Rottwinkle).
Left to right, front row: Jacqueline Steiger (Amanda Thripp), Rhea Pearlman (Mrs. Wormwood), Mara Wilson (Matilda Wormwood), Kiami Davael (Lavender), Sara Magdalin (played the four-year-old Matilda), Danny DeVito (Mr. Wormwood/Narrator), and Embeth Davidtz (Miss Honey).
so I just discovered that Bertie Carvel, the guy who played (it was his last show yesterday according to IBDB and that makes me sad) Ms. Trunchbull in Matilda on broadway was in the Les Mis movie as Bamatabois and how did I not know this
