Hazel Douglas is the actor who plays Bathilda Bagshot
|Born||Some time before 1881|
Bathilda Bagshot is a famous witch and author. She's the historian who wrote the book A History of Magic. She lived, and died, in the equally famous area of Godric's Hollow, the birthplace of Harry Potter. She was good friends with the Potter and Dumbledore families.
The character only appears in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. There is an old woman, past her heyday and living out the end in relative comfort and luxury. Rita Skeeter interviews her for her own book, The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore, shortly after the death of Albus Dumbledore using information-abstraction techniques, such as Veritaserum, to write a book, with over 800 pages inside about Albus Dumbledore.
Later on, Harry is approached wby her while accompanied by Hermione Granger during his visit to Godric's Hollow. She motions for him to come with her to her house and he follows obediently, believing that this is how he'll obtain the Sword of Godric Gryffindor. Inside the house, however, it is revealed that Bathilda is in fact dead and her body is playing host to none other than Voldemort's snake, Nagini. She only spoke when she had Harry alone, because Hermione would have recognized the language they were speaking as Parseltongue, while Harry did not. The snake attacks, with furious strikes at Harry, with Harry and Hermione barely escaping, seeing the last of Bathilda Bagshot within the series.
