Miriam Margolyes might be known for her absolute WTF remarks but the Harry Potter actress has promised she is actually a ‘serious person’.

On the latest episode of The Graham Norton Show, Miriam was joined by stars such as Paul Rudd, Halle Berry and Stephen Fry as she discusses her new autobiography This Much Is True.

However, while the actor often leaves viewers in hysterics with some very crude and hilarious remarks in interviews and TV appearances, she stressed she wants to be remembered for much more than her potty mouth.

Talking about her new autobiography, she told Graham: ‘I am glad to see it is selling – I didn’t expect it to!’

Miriam joked she decided to wait until the ripe old age of 80 to write the book after she was paid an ‘enormous amount’ of money to do so.

She added: ‘I am not a writer; I am an actress but because I have said some rude things on this show people know who I am.

‘I don’t want just to be a mouth that says dirty things – I am more than that.

‘I am a serious, thinking person and I care about the world and the people in it, and I wanted that in the book, so you get the whole person.’

Developing on what the process of writing the book during the pandemic was like, Miriam stated she was grateful to have the opportunity of lockdown to aid the process of putting it together.

She said: ‘Looking back on my life made me sad but mostly it was glorious.

‘I was remembering my life which has been lovely, and I have been very lucky. It was good to do and Covid made it possible.’

Miriam is best-known in recent years for appearing as Professor Sprout in two of the Harry Potter films and Call The Midwife – but the acting royalty has an extensive list of TV and film credits to her name.

She’s also famed for her role in The Age Of Innocence – for which she won best supporting actress at the Baftas.

The Graham Norton Show airs tonight at 10.35pm on BBC One.
