Gothic Idols - Helena Bonham Carter

I thought it was a right thing to dedicate an article to Tim Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter. She often played "gothic" roles in movies. Probably highly influenced by his husband's view of the world. (For those who don't know, Tim Burton is the director of Edward Scissorhands , Nightmare Before Xmas and Beetlejuice (just to say some..) !!

Bonham Carter did not receive any formal training in acting. In 1979, she won a national writing contest and used the money to pay for her entry into the actors directory Spotlight. She made her professional acting début at the age of 16, in a television commercial.
Her first starring film role was as Lady Jane Grey in Lady Jane (1986) which had mixed reviews. The story reflected the troubled life of England's nine-days' Queen from her troubled adolescence and arranged marriage to her ill-fated accession and subsequent execution. Her breakthrough role was Lucy Honeychurch in A Room with a View.

These early films led to her to being typecast as a "corset queen" and "English Rose".


Recently she played the role of Bellatrix LeStrange in Harry Potter movie series and the Red Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland!
