Personal Quote:

[Woody Allen is] the best actor's director I've ever worked with. There's not as much free rein as we're led to believe, because he has a sense of how the scene's going to work and we need to move within those parameters.

Trivia:

Turned down the role of Narcissa Malfoy on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) and the role went to Helen McCrory. See more »
