Personal Quote:

In answer to your question yes, I was asked to do Miss Hardbroom for the new series but I was doing a different job and I didn't really want to, I loved it don't get me wrong but I did it for three years which is quite a long time, you can't do the same part for too long or you forget who you are (not really it just gets a bit predictable) better to stop while you still enjoy it.


She was asked to audition for a similar role to Miss Hardbroom in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001). However, she refused as she felt she should stay loyal to The Worst Witch (1998)! See more »
