Bonham Carter excited about singing

Helena Bonham Carter has revealed to the Press Association she has yet to start work on Les Misérables.

The Dark Shadows actress is set to portray unscrupulous innkeeper’s wife Madame Thénardier in Tom Hooper’s big-screen adaptation of the award-winning musical, alongside Sacha Baron Cohen as her screen husband.

“I don’t know yet. I haven’t really started it. I should have,” Helena said.

The 45-year-old can’t wait to flex her vocal cords again, following her singing stints in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Corpse Bride.

“I’m just rehearsing and learning to sing it. I’m looking forward to it,” she added.
