Hogwarts teacher's wizard night out

Harry Potter actress Emma Thompson cast a spell on onlookers at a star-studded movie awards ceremony.

Thompson, who played Hogwarts teacher Sybil Trelawney, arrived at the Moet British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) sporting fashionable black tights , matching stiletto heels, a chic quiff and a silky blue mini dress.

She accepted the coveted Richard Harris Award at the Old Billingsgate Market ceremony in London on Sunday December 7.

Thompson, 55, follows in the footsteps of luminaries such as Julie Walters, Helena Bonham Carter and John Hurt, all previous winners of the gong, which honours a performer's stand-out contribution to the British film industry.

Other stars at the ceremony included Thompson's long-time friend Dame Helen Mirren, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley and Olivia Colman.

Sherlock star Cumberbatch landed Moet's Variety Award. This followed recent turns as the voice of a wolf in Penguins of Madagascar and as Alan Turing for the codebreaker movie The Imitation Game.
