As mentioned in the answer to this question, there were only two known female Death Eaters who were described in the books. In the movies, there are at least four different women with the Death Eaters who aren’t either Bellatrix or Alecto Carrow, seen in the pictures below. Is anything more ever mentioned about these women? For example, are they ever given names in the end credits, or given any backstory or details in any source, either in or out of universe?

Is anything else known about the additional female Death Eaters in the movies?

    Ok, I read the other question now. Are you sure that all the people in those pictures are actual death eaters? – Fabian Röling Dec 17 '17 at 1:06

    @Fabian Yes, but she’s not actually a Death Eater. Also, no, I’m not sure - it’s possible the other women are “allies” like Narcissa. I’m hoping for more information either way - though I am hoping they’re actually Death Eaters. It would be so disappointing if the Dark Lord was resistant to letting women join the Death Eaters. – Bellatrix Dec 17 '17 at 1:41

    Sure, mass murderer and racist is ok, but sexism goes too far. – Fabian Röling Dec 17 '17 at 10:14

    We know quite a lot about the one in the foreground of the first photo. Height, country of origin, fondness for flesheating, the lot. – The Dark Lord Dec 17 '17 at 19:21

None of them seem to have names in the credits. They're just billed as "Death Eater/s"

    Thanks so much! :) I figured they probably wouldn’t have names, but I decided to try asking anyway. The credits prove they are actually Death Eaters, too, thanks! :D – Bellatrix Dec 17 '17 at 1:52

    What did Penelope McGhie do to merit being called 'Death Eater' rather than 'Death Eaters', I wonder... – The Dark Lord Dec 17 '17 at 19:17

    The credits were in order of appearance. The other three appeared at the same time. She appeared separately in the background during an earlier scene (along with some other death eaters who'd already appeared even earlier in the film). – Valorum Dec 17 '17 at 19:26
  • Is Ashley not a girl's name anymore? – DCOPTimDowd Mar 16 '18 at 20:06

    @DCOPTimDowd - Traditionally male, but largely unisex for the past 80 years, at least in the UK and US – Valorum Mar 16 '18 at 20:21

Well we don't know anything about them, but I would think that their being credited as Death Eaters proves that Voldemort has no problem employing females. He even wanted the muggle-born woman Lily Potter to join his cause! As I've mentioned in another topic, we probably don't even know the names of half of the Death Eaters in the books so odds are there are many female Death Eaters that Harry never meets, notices, or are mentioned to him. I wish JK Rowling would've written in a few more of them.

I've looked in the credits and found a good number of actresses credited as Death Eaters: Catherine Balavage, Judith Sharp, Ashley McGuire, Penelope McGhie, Chloe Franks, Serena Catapano, Elizabeth Jee, Natalie Hallam, Olivia Higginbottom, Elisabeth Roberts.

I got these names from Harry Potter Wiki on both Deathly Hallows film pages. There may be more I missed.

    Maybe you could consider adding in a source to the credits list where you found the names? This would help the user base judge your answer as objectively correct and provide evidence for you claims – Edlothiad Mar 16 '18 at 6:28
