Yeah, I agree. Her look is kinda out there. And Lucius' clothes are far more luxurious than hers. Of course, it's only one outfit, but it cudda been more rich-looking. We'll see soon enough . . . in 5 months!

I'll give her a chance, but I am not sure about this one. Is she the right person, or is it just he pictures we have seen so far who makes me think that.

..OK. I'll give her a chance

(But I still think she looks a little too much Cruella).

Did anyone catch Helen guest-starring on (husband Damian Lewis' show) Life?

It's a show I liked, but, as it was moved around the schedule a lot, I missed many episodes. I discovered that I can view some recent episodes on demand; Helen is in two of the most recent.

Thanks for posting the link, fruitbat. Hadn't seen these pix before. Ginny's almost as tall as Harry!

Saw the pic of her, she's too old for our charming Lucius (I think I've already said that). And, oh, that hair...looks like Cruella indeed.

Unfortunatley the only thing I have seen her in is The Queen, playing Ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair's wife. Do any of you have any idea how funny the idea of Lucius being with Cherie Balir is? I can hardly see the screen for crying with laughter!
On a serious note I wish her all the best in the role, though she should have made an appearence in Goblet of Fire.

Much better photo of her this time around.
I do believe she'd scare the h-e-double toothpicks out of any Muggle, or Muggle-born. aaa.gif

Narcissa is just all wrong for me. I pictured something completely different. Doing the hair as a two-tone is just not true to the character and moreover, so looks much older than Lucius!

She really does, and I think it's because of the clothes and the makeup.
Everything is just off :???:

Totally, or even Prada (Prada was a mess this season)

It's great new pics (thank you for posting)

But Narcissa is soooo not Narcissa (as I pictured her in my head..I know I have said this before..)
Again..a "no" from me.

I really want to give her a chance as that character, but it doesn't look "right" if you know what I mean.

Just the fact that she's in it, and Lucius is in AZKABAN :bat just leaves a bad taste for me.
Her look is really wrong. Narcissa is supposed to be youthful and fair-haired.
I'll still see it. These screencaps are really fab.

I'm sure everyone thinks the same-that's not exactly the "look" we expected for the character.
