Interviewer: “You’re actually looking relatively demure today.”
Helena Bonham Carter: “Well, I’m looking demure today because actually I’m not Bellatrix, I’m Hermione. This is Hermione’s version of Bellatrix.”
Interviewer: “There’s not enough leather for my liking.”
Helena Bonham Carter: “Well, no, because Hermione’s pure. Emma described her and I’ve got lots of notes. She gave me some homework for how to play Hermione. We were sort of comparing the two - Bellatrix and Hermione. And when I got to play her, which is my life’s dream, I mean, everyone wants to play Hermione. She’s much more introverted than Bellatrix, but there’s a lot of worry going on inside her head.”
-Helena Bonham Carter on playing Hermione for the Gringotts scene in Deathly Hallows Part Two.
omg she is so amazingly beautiful, I forgot to breathe. I can’t even….
Breathing? What’s breathing? I think I’ve found the picture of Helena that will kill me…
I’ve stared at this picture for hours before clicking the ‘reblog’ button and I’ll stare at it for hours after I’ve posted it. This photo makes me want to cry, just from the pure beauty of it and her. I’m captivated by her eyes. I always am. But this photo… look at her eyes. Those eyes. They look so sad and yet at the same time there’s so much life and wonder in them.
I have to reblog this because every time I see it, it still takes my breath away.
You’ve never asked about her, not once. Why not?
