Seen two movies in the last 10 days: Shrek 2 and the new Harry Potter movie. The connection? Well, in Shrek 2 the voice of the fairy godmother character is played by Jennifer Saunders. In the Potter movie, the part of the “fat lady” in the painting at the entrance to the Gryffindor common room is played by none other than Dawn French. For those who are still puzzled, and who haven’t yet clicked through those links where the connection is made obvious almost immediately, Jennifer and Dawn first appeared in a TV comedy show in the 1980’s: French & Saunders.
