Thank you. Thank you. Good

evening. Welcome to 'Enough

Rope'. My first guest is just

a little different to most

actors. She has done dickens

and porn, she has been a

penguin, a sheepdog and a

glow-worm and you may also

know her as Professor Sprout

from Harry Potter. Her CV is

as notable as herself. Please

welcome the highly quotable

Miriam Margoyles. Thank you.

I have been greatly

looking forward to this. I

said you are highly quotable.

Let's start with this one

"the Queen just scares the

shit out of me". That is

still true. Why? Because

she told me to be quiet and

that was very scarey. I was

at a party in Buckingham

Palace and it was British

Book Week and she invites

everybody to do with books

and I thought I would like to

meet the Queen since I was

there and I didn't think I

would get a chance to go very

oven to Buckingham Palace so

I asked an equerry could I

meet the Queen and he said

"Just form a semi circle" By

yourself? Well, I think

that is what he meant

actually. As you see, I

comfortably do. So I found

the Queen and this were a

couple of other friend with

us. We smiled at her and she

came up to us and she said

"And what do you do? " And I

hate myself for this, it

shows what an idiot I am but

I just said "I am the best

reader of stories in the

whole world". Complete

idiot. The Queen quite

understandably went.... well,

she turned to the next person

and she said "And what do you

do? " And he said "M'am, I

teach dyslexic children to

read and we found if you

colour the pages and the

letters it helps the children

to absorb the information

more quickly and easily". I

standing next to them very

stupidly said "Gosh that is

fascinating, how

interesting". Whereupon the

Queen turned to me and said

"Be quiet". And I then

said.... "I am so sorry your

Majesty, I got carried away

with is sitement" whereupon

again she went.... then she

started to tell us all about

her morning when she had been

at a school. "I was at a

school in North London and

the children were so

stimulated by the books they

read and I could feel the

importance of literature in

the lives of children" and

she went on a bit like that

then I then said....

then I then said.... quotes
