Who is Dominic Cooper?

A Jewish lesbian comedian is not unusual. While Miriam Margolyes is an actor rather than a comedian, she can also spin a good yarn (tell a good story). I don't get the Professor Spout reference in the title. Is it something to do with Harry Potter?

  1. Hello Andrew:

    Whilst we have to confess to not knowing Miriam Margolyes at all, we rather wish we did. She looks and sounds wonderful - such a fun person.

    As for the other two - completely unknown!!

    1. JayLa, Miriam, yourselves and myself do not know either of them. We are not good at popular culture.

  2. Margolyes lives in Australia now and has taken out Australian citizenship.

    We saw Cooper in Australia acting in The History Boys and he was memorable (i.e. sexy).

    1. Victor, I did hear something about that some time ago but I wasn't sure if it had happened yet. I don't think I saw The History Boys, but clearly I should have.

  4. Is she possibly the woman who played Professor Sprout and taught the Hogwarts kids about magical plants?
    I'll check my DVDs and see if her name is there....okay, she's not listed on any of the covers, but she only did one or two scenes so it may still be her. now you've got me curious enough to search IMDb.

    Professor Pomona Sprout played by Miriam Margolyes in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets also in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2.

    1. Thanks River. I don't know why I thought she was in HP movies. Just something I picked up, I suppose.
