Actually, that's not "another direction" at all, that's really how she is in the book. "Apple-cheeked" might not've ever been stated explicitly, but it certainly reflects her demeanor, and the pink is canonical. So purists should be pretty happy.

I love the "proper acting" line. Although I think Scotty is trying to make a comment that only the Brits know about proper acting?

On a slightly different note, I always find it funny that Brits hate when Americans play a Brit in a movie, play, or whatever. The comment has always been that it is not natural and it takes a job away from a British person - such as Bridget Jones or one of G. Paltrow's roles. They have absolutley no problem however coming over here to play an American.

ummmm, another reason there are so many British actors could be because it was written by a British person and is filmed and set in Britain. Does anyone else just wanna see Clint Eastwood as the new Dumbledore just out of spite now. Proper acting. Piss off!!!!
