Helena goes red in ‘The Lone Ranger’

Posted by: Filed under: Gallery Update, Lone Ranger, Projects

 

Helena Bonham Carter has portrayed many red-haired character before — but never quite as deeply as her Red Harrington in The Lone Ranger, according to her new interview with USA Today.

“I’ve always wanted to have that kind of fake-looking red hair, I’ve never gone this red before,” says Bonham Carter of this exclusive reveal of her character poster. “It’s couldn’t be redder, chili-pepper red.”

Bonham Carter is putting a dash more wild into the Wild West and she has plenty of help with her co-stars Armie Hammer, playing the Lone Ranger, and Johnny Depp, as Tonto, in the film opening July 3. The original Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are also on the project.

Despite the wild look, Bonham Carter says the crazier stuff is not pictured. Her brothel-owning Red Harrington packs an ornate ivory peg-leg with a deadly surprise.

“It has a double-barrel shotgun in it,” says Bonham Carter. “It’s a prop like I’ve never had before. That should be next month’s poster, the leg. It’s beautiful. So my bottom half is even more interesting. Any woman who runs her own business in the wild, wild West has to be a pretty strong character.”

Harrington protects her brothel employees from rowdy customers by putting signs up saying “Any bad behaviour and you will be shot” and backing it up. She agrees to help the Lone Ranger and Tonto hunt down a ruthless gang for her own personal revenge against the gang.

In her first movie involving sharp-shooting (and leg-shooting). Bonham Carter found that she is a very good shot — something she missed out on during her Merchant-Ivory early film days.

“I have good hand-eye coordination,” she says. “It was like, darn, I should have done this earlier.”

But one thing Bonham Carter will not miss out on now — new dream roles involving wild red hair.

“I have always wanted to play Pippi Longstocking,” says Bonham Carter of the famed red-hair literary character. “Maybe I will play her all grown-up. I would love that.”
