Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) has recently spoken about what it was like filming the fight scene between her character and Mrs. Weasley, played by Julie Walters:

"You should warm up before sword fighting, that's what Julie and I found out when we were duelling with each other. We were crippled after that scene!
"Duelling going backward on a table is tricky, without falling off. Which, of course, I did!"

The article goes on to say that the cast and crew found the fight amusing, since Bonham Carter and Walters are friendly off screen. You can read more of the article here.

A great moment in the book! There is so much behind it and seeing Bellatrix receive her just desserts.

I am so grateful to JKR for giving Molly her moment in the sun to prove that she was a true Prewitt, adept at more than just householdy spells. I’m really looking forward to this scene and hoping that the camera won’t be on Bellatrix the whole time.

I’m really anxious to see this scene, both in the good and bad way. I’m going to cry when Bellatrix dies but I really hope they keep the “Not my daughter you bitch!” line too.
