Fairuza balk's career can be found here


As I mentioned in another post there is a more recent
TV series based on the Worst Witch, 1998 - 2001
>From the IMDB page on The Worst Witch I notice that
Diana Rigg (a lust object for any male who grew up in
the '60s) was also in it. Also of note was that Jill
Murphy sued JKR in 2001 - anyone know what happened
there? Unlike that other silly woman she at least has
a case, but if I was judge I'd throw it out of court.
Where would we be if authors couldn't copy each other?
(think of the fortune JRRT could have made)
