Something a little different – Helena plays the role of ‘The Psychic’ in the upcoming DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Dead of the Night is set at Rhodes Manor, a palatial estate in the English countryside, in the year 1912. Dozens of friends and enemies of relic-hunter Alistair Rhodes have been invited for a party. But it turns out the entire affair is actually a trap. A secret society of mystics unleash a spell that transforms all but four of the guests into zombies. As “Dead of the Night” progresses, these characters go from strangers to a tight-knit team, seeking clues and performing tasks they hope will bring this nightmare to an end.
Fellow Lestrange, Zoë Kravitz shared this picture of her with Helena at the premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Helena attended the premiere with Billy & Nell.
I’ve added two gorgeous photos of Helena in the 1991 production of The House of Bernarda Alba at the Nottingham Playhouse.

Helena was interviewed for The Guardian about her film, 55 Steps.
Helena Bonham Carter does not attempt to disguise her hurt. She says she has just made the most important and personal film of her career, and is convinced nobody will see it. 55 Steps tells the story of Eleanor Riese, a psychiatric patient who successfully fought the US’s medical and political establishment in the 1980s for the right to refuse antipsychotic drugs.

Initially, she was going to play Colette Hughes, the campaigning lawyer (think Erin Brockovich) who represents Riese, with Susan Sarandon in the central role. But so much time passed that Bonham Carter ended up playing the older psychiatric patient, with Hilary Swank cast as the lawyer. And now the film is going straight to video.

Anyone remember the photograph that was shared on Instagram by the daughter of a woman who worked on a short film entitled The Gallery? I can’t for the life of me find the original post, but I have found the video! It is roughly 3 minutes long and there’s no dialogue (not quite a silent movie, but close!). You can watch the video here.
