Helena Bonham Carter Talks Deathly Hallows
Talking to MTV.com, Helena Bonham Carter dished on what it was like filming her parts on the upcoming Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.
The actress was doing press interviews for husband Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland but managed to give up a few details about Potter.
“The best bit about being Bellatrix in this one is also because I got to pretend to be Hermione, because Hermione takes polyjuice potion and gets to look like Bellatrix.”
Thank God. This is one of my favourite moments of the book and it sounds as if Helena had a lot of fun playing the scene.
“Rather than put Emma Watson in a helluva load of make-up they just said, ‘Now you go act like Hermione.’ That was fun, because I always wanted to be Hermione. It was great fun. I was looking at Dan and Rupert and they were treating me as if I was 17.”
But if you were getting excited at the prospect of seeing Helena in Deathly Hallows Part I, then you’ll be disappointed. She revealed that because the story is separated into two films, we won’t see Bellatrix until Part II in 2011.
