"Well she got me the job at Potter, practically, so for anyone who doesn’t know that story, I basically owe everything to Maggie Smith because I worked with her on David Copperfield and then she came on to Potter as McGonagall and said to the director, ‘You need to audition this boy.’ So I kind of owe her everything, so to Maggie I just say my fairy godmother."  Daniel Radcliffe (on the first thing that comes to mind  about Maggie)

"I can’t believe Daniel. I’d worked with him ages ago in the only other thing he’d done, really: ‘David Copperfield’ for the BBC. He was enchanting, but he was a tiny person. Look at him now." Dame Maggie Smith, Los Angeles Times

As it happens, he asked me to run away with him.

Lord Grantham gave me a frame by Faberge with two pictures of the children in it. And I saw sense.

dontbesodroopy:

Just taking a moment to appreciate just how utterly beautiful Maggie Smith as Violet looks this season. The face was always beautiful, but the costumes and wig from seasons 3 and 4 in particular weren’t all that pretty at times (I know the dress in the bottom cap was also used in the last Christmas special, but it just looked so much better in this episode). This season though - everything looks so pretty, like the woman wearing them, and judging from the trailer for next week, she has a new (and stunning looking) purple coat.
