From Anavova.com:

Dawn French has landed a big role in the third Harry Potter film - as a character called the Fat Lady.

She will appear in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which began filming last month.

French recently sent up the Potter films in a Comic Relief spoof in which she played the schoolboy wizard.

Now she will appear in the real thing as the Fat Lady, who features in a talking painting at Hogwarts school.

Chris Columbus, director of the first two Harry Potter movies and co-producer of the third, told BBC3's Liquid News: "Yes, Dawn French is playing the Fat Lady. I've been here for three years and fell in love with her work.

"I think she's incredibly funny and her Harry Potter spoof for Comic Relief was pretty amazing."

French is not the first Comic Strip star to bag a part in the films.

Rik Mayall was cast as Peeves the Poltergeist in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone but his performance ended up on the cutting room floor.

The second film in the JK Rowling series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is launched on DVD and video on Thursday.

Pre-orders in the UK have topped half a million - putting it on course to be the biggest seller of all time.

She's replacing Elizabeth Spriggs, who was the fat lady in previous movies.

you have never heard of Dawn French????? The same Dawn French who did the Spoof of Harry Potter about a month ago, playing said same in the "Harry Potter and the Chamberpot of Azerbihjan (sp)"???

She is British ( as one must be British, not just English to be in these films)..

Her claim to fame is the comedy duo of French and Saunders.

british means the whole of the united kingdom. england is one of the 4 countries making up the UK... i dont believe it matters if you are welsh scottish irish or english. as long as you are british. in casting that is.... after all they have scottish and irish characters in HP.
