• OK after hearing many comments and being criticized on POINT OF VIEW, I would like to set the record straight as to why there was NO lisp coming from the mouth of Violet E Bott....and I should know because I was her.

    Had someone told me I was meant to have a lisp, I would have done but it slipped everyones mind and as I was only young and not familiar with the books, I was not to know. By the time someone remembered she was supposed to lisp, we were already several days into shooting and unable to start again.

    As a result I now feel that I didn't do the part justice.

    AND THAT IS WHY VIOLET DID'NT LISP

    I hope those who watched it were not to disappointed
