Its Hilarious To Me That Madame Hoochs Job Is Only To Give Flying Lessons To First Years And Referee Quidditch And Apparently She Doesnt Even Have To Do That, But Still The Gryffindor First Years Have To Have Their Lesson With The Slytherins Its Not Like Shes Short On Time


Harry really only needed the one flying lesson that gets shown in the books/movies, but there were other students that really would need multiple lessons if they ever wanted to be able to get around on broom. She could also be teaching advanced flying classes that Harry wouldn’t need, Ron wouldn’t take because he takes the same classes as Harry, and Herminone wouldn’t take either as it’s not academic. I would’ve expected that this would merit a part-time role with Hooch perhaps coming to stay at Hogwarts for the duration of the flying lessons and then coming back at weekends when there was a match to referee. Madam Rolanda Hooch (b. before 1918) was a witch who worked as the Flying instructor, Quidditch referee, and coach at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Madam Hooch likely attended the school as a student and was probably a member of her House’s Quidditch team. She learnt to fly on her own Silver Arrow broomstick sometime before or during the Great War and returned to Hogwarts for a job.

She has also been working as Honorary Vice-President of the Voluntary Euthanasia Society for some time. Zoë Wanamaker was born on May 13th 1949 in New York, USA. At the age of three, Zoë had to move to London with her family, because which eeoc configuration aligns with the on scene incident organization her father, the actor/director Sam Wanamaker, was blacklisted during the McCarthy witch-hunts. Her mother, Charlotte Holland, was an actress and radio star; when they came to London she left work so she could take care of her family.

On the larger, more significant hand – perhaps a hand that has been hit with an Engorgement Charm – maybe there should have been some sort of vetting process to make sure that this didn’t happen? Even if it was just a quick, ‘Hey, have you been feeling particularly Voldemort-ish recently? While Nearly Headless Nick was polite to first-years, and the Bloody Baron imperiously avoided non-Slytherin students, some – like Peeves the poltergeist – were a downright menace. Peeves went around throwing things at students and pulling rugs from under their feet, for crying out loud.

‘The Birthday Party has surely never looked better, fresher or funnier,’ it emphasises. Interviewed on BBC Radio 2 last month, Zoë described acting in The Birthday Party as ‘one of the happiest experiences I’ve ever had’. Her co-star Stephen Mangan recently echoed those sentiments. Zoë plays Baghra, a stern teacher, in this major new fantasy series based on Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grishaverse novels. Zoë Wanamaker is an American expatriate actress, who has spend most of her career in the United Kingdom.

In 2001, Wanamaker had a supporting role in the fantasy film “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, an adaptation of a novel by J. Wanamaker played the role of Rolanda Hooch, a Quidditch referee and flying instructor for first-year students at the magic school Hogwarts. Slytherin’s background is first discussed by Professor Binns in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets . Slytherin wanted magical learning restricted to all-magical families, as he believed Muggle-born students to be untrustworthy and he disliked teaching such students. According to ancient legend, Slytherin was responsible for the construction of the Chamber of Secrets.

She praises the powerful 2013 West End production, which starred Zoë as Eleanor, a victim of infidelity, and Samantha Bond as her alter ego. After an incredibly successful run at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre, Ian Rickson’s 60th anniversary revival of The Birthday Party, starring Zoë, bowed out on 14 April. The production of Pinter’s disturbing classic garnered numerous five-star reviews, with The Times praising Zoe’s portrayal of the too-trusting landlady Meg as ‘absolutely terrific’. The third series of Sky Atlantic’s epic drama about the Romans invading ancient Britain stars Zoë as vengeful Queen Antedia.

Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington KG, often referred to as Nearly Headless Nick, Nick, or Sir Nicholas, is the Gryffindor House ghost who in life was sentenced to death by beheading after a teeth-straightening spell went awry on Lady Grieve. However, the executioner’s axe was blunt and Nick’s head was still attached to his neck by a thin strip of skin after 45 chops. Harry becomes friends with Nick when he attends his “deathday” party in a Hogwarts dungeon. Nick’s death date had the distinction of having served as the basis for the entire chronology of the Harry Potter stories, until the timeline was confirmed by James and Lily’s headstone in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. His greatest wish is to become a member of the Headless Hunt, as mentioned in the second book. However, he is excluded due to the fact that he is not actually headless (“he is nearly headless”) and would never be completely able to participate in the activities (such as “Head Polo”).
