Helena Bonham Carter Joins the Hogwarts Faculty

OK, maybe she’s not a member of the faculty, but I needed a catchy headline and HBC has indeed been added to the cast of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." But it’s good news all around, because, as you know, Ms. Carter is a fantastic addition to any cast.

She’ll be stepping into the role of "Death Eater" Bellatrix Lestrange, and even though I haven’t read the book, it sounds like a perfect role for this particular actress.

Says IGN FilmForce: "Helena Bonham Carter (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Planet of the Apes) has joined the cast of Warners’ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

CBBC Newsround reports that Carter is replacing the pregnant Helen McCrory, who had been cast as Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange in the David Yates-directed film. The screenplay adaptation was penned by Michael Goldenberg (Where the Wild Things Are, Peter Pan).

In other Potter casting news, the CBBC also claims that actress Apple Brook has been cast as Professor Grubbly-Plank."

ComingSoon.net also has a little bit of HP5 info: "This is North Scotland reports that the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix production arrived last week in the West Highlands to shoot breathtaking sequences for the fifth film in the franchise. Scenes are being shot in Glenfinnan, Glencoe and Glen Etive.

The first of the action saw a Harry Potter double on location at Glenfinnan, in front of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Monument, skimming flat stones across Loch Shiel. Film crews in boats recorded the action, as excited tourists visiting the monument looked on eagerly."
