Author Notes

Helena Bonham Carter was born on May 26,1966. She is an Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominated English actress. She is best known for her portrayals of Lucy Honeychurch in the film "A Room with a View", Bellatrix Lestrange in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", her Oscar-nominated performance as Kate Croy in "The Wings of the Dove", and her Golden Globe-nominated performance as Mrs. Lovett in "Sweeney Todd."

Bonham Carter was born in Golders Green, London. She now lives in Belsize Park, London, with her partner, Tim Burton. They live in adjoining houses with a connecting hallway, each part decorated and styled to suit their own personalities, because they felt they couldn't live 'together' but didn't want to live apart. She has two children with him, a son named Billy Ray, and a daughter named Nell.
