Helena is said to be in final negotiations to return as the Red Queen in the sequel to Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, according to Variety. Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska have already signed on to reprise their roles for Through the Looking Glass, which will be directed by James Bobin. Thank you to MsBellatrixLestrange for sharing!
Last night, Helena was joined by over 500 guests, including Helen McCrory, Damien Lewis, Colin Firth, Suggs, Dominic West and Sir Michael Cain, for A Night of Reggae, raising over £1.4 million for Save the Children. I have added 15 HQ and 7 MQ pictures of Helena, who attended with her mother, Elena.
I have added 6 HQ and 3 MQ pictures of Helena looking awesome in Turks and Caicos. Thank you to Hannah for letting us know that the third part of the trilogy, Salting the Battlefield will air Thursday 27th March at 9pm on BBC2. The trilogy boxset will be released 21st April, thank you to Danni for that information.
Last night, Helena attended David Cameron‘s Reception for Inspirational Women at 10 Downing Street. She was joined by the likes of Erin O’Connor, Carol Voderman, Lorraine Pascale, Lizzy Yarnold and Joan Collins, among others. I have added 11 MQ pictures to the gallery.
Meryl Streep has been cast as Emmeline Pankhurst in the upcoming film Suffragette, according to the Guardian. She is said to be in final negotiations to play ‘a small but important role’ as the iconic political activist. Meryl Streep has previously worked with writer Abi Morgan in The Iron Lady. The Ruby Films drama will be directed by Sarah Gavron and produced by Faye Ward and Alison Owen.
Shooting begins on Monday.
I have added 7 HQ and 9 MQ pictures of Helena attending the Dramatic Arts Reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Queen Elizabeth II.
I have been working on the style section and have added a page for one of Helena’s favourite jewellery designers, Annina Vogel. You can also find details of their 2011 collaboration for National Treasures at Liberty, the proceeds of which went to Save the Children. Helena wears a lot of Annina Vogel, so I suspect it will be a while before the page is anywhere near complete, but in the meantime, enjoy pictures of Helena’s designs in the gallery.
It is now confirmed that Helena will join Carey Mulligan to star in Suffragette. The first read-through has already taken place and filming will begin in London later this month. There are still no details about Helena’s role, although Mulligan is set to play ‘a woman who turns to violence in the battle for the vote after seeing peaceful protests achieve nothing’, according to Evening Standard.
I have added 13 MQ images of Helena attending the launch of The Love Book by Allie Esiri on Wednesday evening.
What exactly was Helena Bonham Carter hinting at when making cryptic comments about her Valentine’s Day plans last night? The actress was with ‘Bridget Jones’ author Helen Fielding and writer Allie Esiri in Marylebone’s Daunt Books for the launch of Esiri’s The Love Book, an anthology of poetry and prose.
Comedian Harry Enfield recalled the ultimate sacrifice he made for l’amour. “There was a time when Arsenal were playing a game on Valentine’s Day, and I didn’t go.”
Beside him was Helena. “What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done?” the Londoner asked, hoping for some tips. “I think it#s about to happen,” she said. “I’m still waiting for it…” And then she turned away. Is she teasing, or hoping long-term partner Tim Burton is about to up the stakes?
