Helena Bonham Carter may be too old to play Hermione Granger, but she has a chance to impersonate her in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". In an interview with MTV, the actress says she had fun when pretending to be Harry Potter's best friend as Hermione takes polyjuice potion to look like Bellatrix Lestrange in the upcoming movie.
"The best bit about being Bellatrix in this one is also because I got to pretend to be Hermione," she gushed on her role of the evil witch. "That was fun, because I always wanted to be Hermione." She then shared her feeling of shooting the scene, stating "It was great fun. [I was] looking at Dan [Radcliffe] and Rupert [Grint] and they were treating me as if I was 17."
As it has been known, "Deathly Hallows" novel will be made into two movies, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II". Asked where the book will be split, Carter answered, "I can't remember where they are going to cut."
She later spilled the beans on the next two installments of "Harry Potter" film series as she revealed that the scene where "the Potter crew have been elusive" will be included in the second movie. "Yeah, [the scene is] definitely in the second one, because all of my stuff is in the second one. So you won't see me until 2011," she stated.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will serve as the final chapter of the "Harry Potter" film series. The story follows Daniel Radcliffe's Harry Potter, Rupert Grint's Ron Weasley and Emma Watson's Hermione Granger who leave Hogwarts behind and set out to find and destroy the Horcruxes-the secret to Voldemort's power and immortality.
David Yates serves behind the lens for these two movies. It has been confirmed that Warner Bros. Pictures will release the first part in 3-D on November 19 both in U.S. and U.K., while second part is scheduled for July 15, 2011 premiere.
