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.

It’s going to be legendary…poor woman, she really got crippled, but I think that that scene is going to be so good it’s almost worth falling off the table ;)

Guess That Book

Harry watched Hagrid getting redder and redder in the face as he called for more wine, finally kissing Professor McGonagall on the cheek, who, to Harry's amazement, giggled and blushed, her top hat lopsided.
