LONDON, June 27 (UPI) -- Britain's Emma Thompson says brewing up mischief in the movie "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" is nothing new for her.

"I was brought up by people who tended to giggle at funerals, Thompson told More magazine

Thompson and her "Sense and Sensibility" co-star, Greg Wise, had a child, Gaia Romilly, and Thompson had announced she was giving up Hollywood for motherhood.

But her hiatus was short-lived: she played a professor battling ovarian cancer in HBO's "Wit," received accolades for her role in "Angels in America," and the latest Harry Potter movie has landed her again on the red carpet -- something the 45-year-old actress admits may be harder and harder to do.

"It will take longer and longer to fight a bad photo until one day, when I resign myself to defeat, I will go out wearing a tea cozy," she said.
