Zoe Wanamaker has appeared in so much over the years, and it seems stupid to put that her `claim to fame` is playing Madamme Hooch in the philosopher`s stone (not Sorcerer`s Stone), one of the most notable roles she portrays is the lead in My Family as Susan Harper, which started a year before harry potter, even that was not her claim to fame. It should be changed.

Zoe is simply the best actress I know. I can´t say which role I have liked best of all because Zoe is fantastic in every role. One brings her so many lives in every role just colaugh, can cry and suffer. And I have never experienced this before with other actors. I am just proud to be Zoe fan on it.
