Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) has been made a "Commander of the British Empire":

Bonham Carter received a CBE, or Commander of the Order of the British Empire award -- one step below a knighthood -- after the most successful year of her career, capped by her performance in "The King's Speech", the hit film about the stammering king George VI.
She dedicated the honour to her father, who spent the last years of his life severely disabled after an operation to remove a brain tumour went wrong, and joked that it could lead to changes at home.
"I am wondering, does it mean I get to command? Because at the moment it's my four-year-old daughter who does the commanding in our household. Must inform her of the change in situation," she said.

Congratulations on winning a well deserved award. I’ve always loved her and her performances. She is a truly eclectic actress who has shown her talent in each and every role she has played.

Im made up for her! She deserves it so much, she’s a fantastic actress. I’ve loved her long before she was in Harry Potter, she’s my favourite actress :)

Guess That Book

"Er -- have the Bludgers ever killed anyone?" Harry asked, hoping he sounded offhand.[br] "Never at Hogwarts. We've had a couple of broken jaws but nothing worse than that."
