Helena Bonham Carter: "Fun" Playing Hermione as Bellatrix in "Deathly Hallows"Bonham Carter Interviews
Actress Helena Bonham Carter has given an interview for the Dish Rag Blog on Zap2It.com in which the Bellatrix Lestrange actress spoke briefly of the role of her character in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films. Describing Bellatrix as a "horrible... not a cuddly, creature," she goes on to say:
She is sort of Voldemort's right hand woman and she's sadistic and I've killed. I do really horrible things... I killed Sirius Black ages ago. I kill Dobby in this one, and I torture Hermione.
Oh, that's what's fun is... I got to pretend to be Hermione because Hermione takes this potion that makes her look like me. I had to act Hermione pretending to be me... It was fun being seventeen.
