Helena Bonham Carter (“Bellatrix Lestrange” in the Harry Potter films) has won the Best Actress award today at Empire Awards 2009.
“Thanks so much. This is a real compliment, I’m very chuffed. I did work actually incredibly hard for that role, but I loved every bit of it, and it was so many dreams come true. I always wanted to be in a musical, to sing, to be in something by Steven Sondheim and I always wanted a baby girl. I actually got all that, thanks to Tim Burton. And I know he always wanted to be Best Actress, so this is as much his as mine. Thank you!”
