- —Madam Irma Pince’s note in a library book
#TopConGeekExpo is a little excited and a little terrified to Welcome Madam Irma Pince, er, ah, we mean Sally Mortemore to TopCon Geek Expo 2018.
TOPCON GEEK EXPO INVITES YOU MEET THE TALENTED AND CHARMING SALLY MORTEMORE
The TopCon Geek Expo Team Is Excited to bring to the United States for the first time Sally Mortemore.
Sally started by training as a classical dancer at the Arts Educational Schools in Tring, Hertfordshire where she soon realized acting was the direction in which she wanted to go and in 1977, the associated Board of the Royal Schools Of Music presented her with an award for the highest achievements in Drama throughout Great Britain and Northern Ireland. She went on to train for three years at the London Arts Educational Schools in Golden Lane, winning the accolade for Style in Acting in 1981 and from there she went straight into Rep at Hornchurch.
Since then, she has continued with her first love, the theatre, working for companies who are somewhat physically and visually orientated with a strong ensemble belief.
Her work with Red Shift Theatre Company won her great praise from the critics for all three shows, her Gertrude being desribed as ‘the best I have ever seen’ and as Julianna Bordereau in ‘The Aspern Papers’, ‘this brilliant and incisive actress…’
Sally portrayed Madam Irma Pince in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
“They waited, and not a moment later the Vulture like countenance of Madam Pince appeared around the corner, her sunken cheeks, her skin like parchment, and her long hooked nose… ”
Sally’s chilling and stark performance as Madam Irma Pince has earned her acclaim and fans the world over.
Madam Pince: “The library is now closed. Mind that you return anything you have borrowed to the correct— what have you been doing to that book, you depraved boy?’“
Harry Potter: “It isn’t the library’s, it’s mine!”
Madam Pince: “Despoiled! Desecrated! Befouled!”
Harry Potter: “It’s just a book that’s been written on!”
