Interfering Publishers & Michael Portillo

I really wasn’t expecting this…

  1. No, no, no! Alan Rickman must play Professor Sinistrov! Being dead will merely add a little something to the performance. The Dean… hmm… since I suspect he might be DHP’s love interest, I suggest Sean Bean – bet you’d play the role then!

    1. I believe that Alan Rickman is so talented that being dead will be no barrier to him playing Professor Sinistrov. I had him in mind when I first wrote the character so it’s damn inconvenient of him to die before we can make the films πŸ˜‰
      I thought Sean Bean for Head Gardener! He would spend every scene stripped to the waist, sweating from his toil and little petals stuck to his manly chest… (I’ve given this far too much thought…)

    2. *has a little pause for a daydream*

    If Hollywood get involved they’ll have Angelina Jolie or Charlie Therzon in the lead. Are you happy with that? (With a shoot-out and at least one explosion in Old College).
    And there’ll be no cake or tea….beware of their silver tongues Lucy.

    1. Fear not, Hollywood will never get their sticky mitts on Old College. It is much better suited to an Ealing comedy or possibly Elstree πŸ˜‰

      Glad to hear it Lucy! What a true Brit!
      Ealing or Elstree…Now we are talking! If only Alec Guinness were still around!πŸ€—

    3. The Britishness is the biggest part of PorterGirl! Ah, Alec Guinness – a true master of his craft. Still – we do have the magnificent Paul Butterworth!

      PorterGirl is Britain!
      Any chance of her running for parliament?

    5. I think it is only a matter of time… πŸ˜‰
