Dame Maggie Smith Says ‘Harry Potter’ And ‘Downton Abbey’ Weren’t ‘Satisfying’



Maggie Smith was not particularly happy with her work in “Harry Potter” and “Downton Abbey”.
Her roles were not as iconic to her as they were to the rest of the world.
She felt as though her work in the movies consisted of too many reaction shots.

“I am deeply grateful for the work in ‘Potter’ and indeed ‘Downton’. But it wasn’t what you’d call satisfying. I didn’t really feel I was acting in those things. I wanted to get back to the stage so much because theatre is basically my favourite medium, and I think I felt as though I’d left it all unfinished.”
