Emmy Spotlight: ‘Burton & Taylor’

Posted by: Filed under: Burton & Taylor Leave a Comment (0)


When casting a movie about Elizabeth Taylor, Helena Bonham Carter would probably not be the first actress you’d think of to play one of the most iconic, revered, and beloved women of the 20th century. Not to worry, though, Bonham Carter won’t take it personally, since she’s not her first choice, either. Still, when producers of the BBC Four telefilm cast their movie about Taylor, ex-husband Richard Burton, and their ill-fated turn in the 1983 revival of Noël Coward‘s play Private Lives, it was Bonham Carter who came to mind. Good thing she said yes, as the two-time Oscar nominee is now a front runner for her third Emmy nomination, as well. Studio System News chat with Bonham Carter about her performance in the role.

SSN: Did you ever meet Elizabeth Taylor? Did your paths ever cross?
Bonham Carter:
No, sadly not. I never did. I’ve met lots of people who had met her, friends of hers, but I never had the luck to meet her. Of course now, having played her, I feel like I have. It’s a very big responsibility to play someone who actually existed, and without having the chance to have that firsthand meeting with them, inevitably you can find someone who was around and knew them. You depend on other people’s firsthand accounts.

SSN: This is not the first time you’ve played someone iconic. A couple years ago, you got an Oscar nomination for playing the Queen Mother.
Bonham Carter:
Clearly, Elizabeth is an important name to me. (laughs) I was lucky in that one of my oldest friends was Elizabeth Taylor’s god daughter. When I was asked to play her, I was shocked, because of course I look nothing like her. When something like that happens, you feel like you have to ask permission, but if the person is dead, you really can’t, can you? So I asked my friend, and she said, ‘she would find it funny.’ So that, combined with their permission and the fact that she had such a great sense of humor made me think, yeah, I really want to do this. More than that, I was honored to do it. …Read More

Q&A with Donna Coulling

Posted by: Filed under: The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet Leave a Comment (0)


Helena recently sat down for a question and answer session with her PA, Donna Coulling. They chatted about Helena’s upcoming film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, read the interview below!

How and why did you become involved in this project?
Because I loved it and Jean-Pierre has always been my dream director. And frankly if he’d asked me to do a commercial for furniture polish I’d have done it. Plus he emailed and asked me, and I love him.

How much input do you prefer to have over the portrayal of a character? Is this harder to do with a character already established in a book?
No because if there is already a book there is a lot of information to draw on. If the character inspires you and the more coloured and nuanced they are the more details and ideas it gives you. …Read More

New Interview with the Guardian

Posted by: Filed under: Helena News, Projects Leave a Comment (0)


Helena Bonham Carter talks to the Guardian about ‘witty’ David Cameron, ‘weirdo’ Lars von Trier and why Tim Burton won’t watch a rom-com. The actress talks about her friendship with the prime minister, why she turned down the Danish director and her false teeth hoard.

On a warm summer’s day Helena Bonham Carter is between jobs and between homes, supervising a move between the pair of London houses that she shares with Tim Burton. She is surrounded by photos and books, together with bizarre sets of false teeth from the roles she has played. “It’s like an archeological dig into my own past,” she explains. “I should sell tickets and open up a museum.” The souvenirs keep spinning before her eyes, like the animated props in a Harry Potter movie.

If you’re looking for an index of 30 years of high-toned British cinema, the Bonham Carter back catalogue provides as good a map as any. The route winds through her 80s breakthrough as the muse for Merchant Ivory, through Hamlet and Frankenstein, to The King’s Speech and Les Misérables. In the early years she played limpid and lovely, tottering about in bonnets and being ravished in poppy fields, although I confess that I like her better in her wilder recent incarnations. She’s perversely beautiful as raging Bellatrix LeStrange, the stentorian Red Queen, or ghoulish Mrs. Lovett, who bakes the bodies into pies in Sweeney Todd. On screen, at least, she has travelled a great deal further than the house next door. …Read More
