Imelda Staunton felt so bad after cruelly punishing Harry Potter

Imelda Staunton, who played the villainous Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter films, has said that the more heartless moments made her feel horrible. The 66-year-old actress played Professor Dolores Umbridge, who worked for the Ministry of Magic, later taught Defense Against the Dark Arts. And served as headmistress at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

And Imelda said some of the scenes she had to film as her villain character were very “difficult,” including one in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” where Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) was forced to write lines, which then etched themselves painfully into the back of his hand, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

“It was challenging because I want to ensure I serve the story’s goal. Even though I had a great time filming it, I will admit that the scene where I forced him to write lines. And they appeared on his hand, was the most challenging part.

She said, “You know, the ‘I must not tell lies’ detention scene. That touched into something that you think, ‘Gosh, we’re all capable of great cruelty.’ It was a horrible, horrible feeling.”
