Myself and Jamie would like to wish you all a very (late) Merry Christmas! We hope you all had a lovely day and enjoyed your Christmas dinners and, of course, your presents! Hopefully everyone got at least one Helena DVD 😉
Okay, first of all: I have come to the conclusion that I must be going mad. Why? Because I’m sure that I had MQ and tagged versions of pictures belonging to the same set as photos I’ve just uploaded. But I can’t find them anywhere. If you do happen to stumble across them in the gallery, would you mind putting me out of my misery and sending me the link?
Edit: Well, I don’t know what happened, but they’re not there. Added one, anyways.
Anyway, a slightly random gallery update. I’ve added 5 HQ pictures including a stunning Merlin promo, two photoshoot pictures, another shot of Helena with Rik Mayall, and a picture from A Hazard of Hearts.
I’ve added 4 HQ pictures from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, thanks to PotterPix on Tumblr. I’ve also found 3 untagged versions of some promotional pictures from Order of the Phoenix.
An exclusive, one-of-a-kind celebrity autographed Ty Warner Beanie Baby created especially for the benefit of the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation – a charity that supports the families of children with cancer – is being auctioned. Signed by a whole host of celebrities including Helena Bonham Carter, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Leonardo DiCaprio and many more, this unique bear comes with a photo album containing pictures of celebrities at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
To bid for a chance of winning the bear, visit the eBay Auction.
A very big thank you to LA and Sandy for sharing this awesome clip of Helena in a sketch for Jo Brand: Through the Cakehole in 1993.
A very big Happy Birthday to Helena and Tim’s daughter, Nell, who is four today! We hope she had a fantastic day.

It seems that this Christmas there will be another special based on the wonderful Gruffalo story! Helena has once again lent her voice to the special, entitled The Gruffalo’s Child, which will air on Christmas Day. Below, thanks to Twitch Film, we have a brief synopsis for the special and an ‘identification spot’ for it, built entirely on footage from the stop motion animated feature. Enjoy!
One wild and windy night, the Gruffalo’s child ignores her father’s warnings and bravely tiptoes out into the snow in search of the Big Bad Mouse. She meets Snake, Owl and Fox, but there’s no sign of the fabled Mouse. He doesn’t really exist … or does he?
I’ve added two amazing pictures of Helena on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, thanks to PotterPix on Tumblr (fast becoming one of my favourite blogs right now!)
Look’s like Helena has been out Christmas shopping today! Shopping is hard work, so I don’t blame her for wearing slipper-like shoes! Thanks to PureTrend.com I have added 4 MQ images to the gallery, make sure you login to view them!
