English actress Helena Bonham Carter will reprise her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."


Widely praised for her recent performance of female Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", Helena Bonham Carter will be back for the second time to the fantasy franchise, U.K.'s The Independent has confirmed.

Report from the paper claimed that the Oscar nominee is set to once more play the villainous character in "Phoenix" follow-up, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince", scheduled to start filming this month. According to her publicist, however, the actress is not due back on the movie's set until the spring.

Carter, a frequent collaborator of renowned filmmaker Tim Burton, who is also her fiance, made her professional acting debut at age 16 to then land her breakthrough in 1986's "A Room with a View." She originally was offered the role of Bess McNeill in the1996 romantic drama "Breaking the Waves", but turned it down due to the sexual content. The part later went to Emily Watson who later scored an Oscar nomination for her performance there.
