I have added two MQ pictures of Helena on the set of Cinderella, published by The Telegraph.
Kenneth Branagh: Helena Bonham Carter plays a deliciously ditzy and well-meaning fairy godmother who seems not necessarily to be in perfect control of her powers. We see here that look of slight apprehension. Helena wanted a touch of the yummy mummy and talked about Mae West and Marilyn Monroe. She was also very keen to have wings. Sandy was a little anti-wing to begin with, but came around. Her dress was lit from the inside – there’s a whole disco rig underneath there – and we had guys following her with a battery, so it would light up when she lifted her wand. We had real and CGI pumpkins, plus a huge inflatable one. This is made from polystyrene and the sculptors inserted a weight because we wanted it to have the weight of a real pumpkin.
Helena hosted another themed bash in aid of Save the Children; Helena was joined by Burton and Taylor co-star, Dominic West for ‘A Night of Disco‘ at The Roundhouse in London. Helena’s mother, Elena also joined her for the event. I have added 16 MQ pictures to the gallery, which will hopefully be replaced with HQs later today! Edit: we’ve got 8 HQ pictures so far! We now have 25 HQ pictures. Enjoy!
To celebrate International Women’s Day this coming Sunday, the cast and crew of Suffragette are joined by Helen and Laura Pankhurst, great-grand-daughter and great-great-grand-daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, for a special portrait. Source:The Guardian

I have upgraded the Cinderella stills with higher resolution versions, and added one extra thanks to Lily-James.com. If you have been following the official Cinderella tumblr, you will know that they have been releasing photos and GIFs in the countdown to the film’s release; I’ve added two of the Fairy Godmother pictures to the gallery.
I have added more HQ pictures of Helena at the recent Berlinale International Film Festival, as well as upgrading existing photos. A big thanks to Far, Far Away Site and Lindsay for their contributions.
I’m probably a little late to the party here (I’ve been busy with university), but has anyone checked out the official website for Cinderella? How about their Tumblr page? You can download some cute gifs like this one:
And Helena features on the soundtrack! I didn’t even realise she would be singing in Cinderella!
Photographer, Rick McGinnis has posted an interesting blog post about photographing Helena at the Toronto Film Festival in 1996, including 3 previously-unseen portraits! He also photographed Tim at the 2005 festival.
I first saw Helena Bonham Carter in real life several years earlier, in the lobby of the Sutton Place during the film festival. She was already known as an eccentric, and suddenly appeared in the middle of the thronging lobby in a pair of overalls with one leg rolled up, a pair of mismatched socks and Converse high tops. Oblivious to the stares of the crowd around her, she scanned the corridors looking for someone, apparently in vain. (read more)
