Helena Bonham Carter loves to scare children

Actress Helena Bonham Carter loves “terrifying” children who think she is her ‘Harry Potter’ character Bellatrix Lestrange.

The British star, who has two children with director Tim Burton, enjoys playing the evil woman and is impressed that authour JK Rowling, who wrote the original novels on which the blockbuster films are based, managed to capture a generation of kids with her creations.

“I love the number of children I meet who are captivated by it, all of whom think I’m terrifying because I play Bellatrix,” says the actress.

“How amazing of JK Rowling to have captured their imagination.”
