MovieThe “Harry Potter” films made millions, but Miriam Margolis, who played Professor Sprout, can’t talk about it. In an interview, the 81-year-old actress told what was left of her share of films. “I grumbled about it then.”
Miriam Margulies appeared in the two “Harry Potter” collections: “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2”. “I only received 60,000 pounds (about 69,000 euros),” the actress has revealed now in an interview with the “Daily Mail”. “Now I no longer regret it, because it made me famous. But then I grumbled about it a few times.”
In her opinion, the 81-year-old actress may not have earned much in the way of films, but it is also indisputable that she made a huge difference on a professional level. “I never thought I’d become so famous,” Margolis told the Daily Mail. “Fans follow me on the street. They all want a picture with Professor Sprott.” In her talk, the actress also explained that fans are still asking her for an autograph. Although she was less impressed with the movies. It sounds straightforward “I slept during the first and second shows”.

Despite the huge popularity of the films, Miriam herself is not a big fan of the “Harry Potter” series. “I can honestly say that I have never seen a movie. I still haven’t read a single book.” She continues, “During my audition, I admitted that I didn’t know much about the series, but they wanted someone who could play the teacher. Something that was written for me.”
Earlier this month, Margulies also responded to the death of fellow “Harry Potter” Robbie Coltrane, better known as Hagrid. “He was a wonderful actor and a wonderful human being. His heart and personality were the size of his stature.” The actress said she was furious when she learned of Coltrane’s death. “It was extraordinary. It made me angry and sad. I really loved him and it is a pity that he is gone.”
