Rule 5 Saturday - Helena Bonham Carter - Red Fairy Queen Godmother

This weeks Rule 5 study is Helena Bonham Carter, prompted by desperation, and the news (via Famous for being Famous in Wombat-Socho's daily "Live at 5" at The Other McCain) that she has been chosen to play the Fairy Godmother in Kenneth Branaugh's new take on the old fairy tale "Cinderella."

Helena seems well suited to the role of a supernatural creature, have played the evil/mad "Bellatrix Lastrange" in the various Harry Potter flicks, the Red Queen in "Alice in Wonderland", the voice of Emily the corpse bride in "The Corpse Bride", and Elizabeth Frankenstein.

Along the way she has also play more human roles in "Fight Club" (1999), "Novocain" (2001) (with Steve Martin) and "Till Human Voices Wake Us" (2002) (NSFW links).

Wombat-socho at the Other McCain lists this in his all encompassing list of Rule 5 posts for the week, "Rule 5 Sunday: Taylor Swift, We Hardly Knew Ye."


  1. In a lot of ways, the female Johnny Depp.

    Ironically, she was never more appealing than as Elizabeth in "The King's Speech".
