Spoiler-Free Harry Potter Post

July 9, 2007

I was reading this today about Helena Bonham-Carter's portrayal of dark witch Bellatrix Lestrange in the latest Harry Potter flick. At first, I thought it was the same ho-hum story about yet another bigger-named actor in one of the Potter flicks (especially since Bellatrix isn't all that involved in this episode).

But then my pretty little eyes lit upon this part:

"At first they thought, `Oh, we'll just put her in a sack,'" Bonham Carter said. "But I said, `There's no way I'm going to wear a sack. I've got to be a sexy witch.'"

"I wanted a sort of bodice thing to give me a shape," she said. "There is a bit of the warrior about her Bellatrix means warrior. She's the right-hand Death Eater to Voldemort.

"I also wanted everything to be splitting at the seams and a bit of `Sunset Boulevard' disintegration to be going on, because she's been in prison for so long. She has a very posh, aristocratic carriage, because she's pureblooded, but at the same time she's completely divorced from reality."

Oh hell yeah. It's not that I think Helena Bonham-Carter is hot, but she is fairly attractive and most definitely sexy. Especially with the accent. So, to hear she'll be filling a bodice to the utmost, well...sign me up. Especially with dark hair. about Witch-alicious.

Maybe I'll start rooting for the bad guys after this...

If you haven't seen it yet, you should...though I haven't read the books since Prisoner of Azkaban, I really enjoyed the movie. You won't be disappointed...particularly by Helena Bonham-Carter, who does a kickass job.

Oh, man, you definitely should keep up on the reading. Goblet of Fire is probably my favorite in the whole series, though Half-Blood Prince is pretty good.

I think the Mrs. and I are heading out to see the flick next weekend, after crowds die down a bit. I'm glad to hear a positive review, especially about my new favorite witch-a-licious character.
