I have known rich people and poor people in my life but I guess I could say I have never known anyone really famous. If I had the choice to chat with a famous person my choice would have to be Maggie Smith.Dame Margaret Natalie Smith, 'DBE - Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire' (born 28 December 1934), better known as Maggie Smith, is an English film, stage, and television actress who made her stage debut in 1952 and is still performing after 59 years. I love the richness of the roles she portrays but most of all I think I love her sense of the absurd. Her humor in such roles as Constance, Countess of Trentham in Gosford Park just tickles my funny bone so much I laugh out loud every time I watch her. She has had many diverse roles both on the stage and in the movies. If I could meet her I would ask her how hard it was to keep from laughing when she had to be serious while still portraying such fantastic humor. I would congratulate her on all her awards and nominations.Her role as Professor Minerva McGonagall in the Harry Potter movies was great. To me she has aged so gracefully one forgets her age. Her giggle is infectious, inciting everyone to join her in a laugh, sometimes at the expense of those not even getting the fact that the person she was portraying was the one being giggled at. Such is that wonderful British humor I love. It will be a sad day for me when she no longer feels the energy to act.

LOVE your page! Maggie Smith is always fantastic in any role she is portraying. I also love her. I remember her from The VIPS, can you believe it? Indeed a great choice. Thanks for participating on my challenge.
