There was a Scottish politician named Edwin Scrymgeour, could have been based on/used as inspiration. 11:52, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Date of Birth

Is there a source for Scrimgeour's date of birth being "circa 1940"? Oread (talk) 02:25, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

It has been changed to 1937. Source?--Rodolphus 15:04, 31 August 2009 (UTC)


Luna Lovegood states that he might be a vampire. But are vampires able to use magic? Mordakai D'Alessio 16:07, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

Werewolves can use magic, so if the vampire is a wizard, than it can probably use magic. Scrimgeour probably isn't a werewolf though, it is just one of the many conspiracy theories that the lovegoods believe in.

Ministry Statue

I was wondering if in the opening scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 we get to see a glimpse of the statue that was in the Atrium during Scrimgeour's tenure as Minister. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 03:44, January 1, 2011 (UTC)


I wondered if there was a direct source saying that Rufus Scrimgeour was actually Scottish? This interivew, which IMO seems legit but apparently might not be, shows Bill Nighy, the actor who portrayed him, as having said to have spoken with a Welsh accent, and thus given him a nationality of coming from Wales. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 18:11, March 11, 2014 (UTC)

Billy Nighy did indeed say that he portrayed him as being Welsh (although, as a Welshman, I thought the accent was a bit overdone :P), but outside of that one interview, there's little to place the location from which he comes from. It seems that the accent was his own artistic choice, rather than a canonical feature of the character.
