THE THEORY OF FLIGHT

HELENA BONHAM CARTER portrays a young woman determined to experience love amidst extraordinary circumstances in one of her most unusual and complex roles to date. Bonham Carter most recently drew acclaim and multiple awards including a Best Actress Oscar® nomination for a very different performance as a woman immersed in a turn-of-the-century love triangle in Ian Softley's adaptation of Wings of the Dove. She was also recently cited as Best Actress by Canada's Genie Awards for Margaret's Museum and received an Emmy nomination for her appearance as the sorceress Morgan Le Fey in the lauded television miniseries "Merlin." Bonham Carter will next be seen in Fightclub for director David Fincher starring with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.

Born and raised in London, Bonham Carter was educated at London's Westminster School and pursued an academic career before being persuaded by director Trevor Nunn to star in his film Lady Jane. On the last shooting day of that film, James Ivory offered her the ingenue lead in A Room With A View. It was the first of a series of E.M. Forster adaptations that would bring her international acclaim, followed by Where Angels Fear To Tread, Howard's End and a memorable cameo in Maurice. Opposite Mel Gibson, she played Ophelia in Franco Zefirelli's Hamlet. Other roles include Woody Allen's wife in Mighty Aphrodite, Elizabeth in Kenneth Branagh's Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the fairy-tale musical "The Princess and the Pea."

Among her more contemporary film and television roles are a victim of anorexia in Getting It Right, a stripper in Dancing Queen and the widow of Lee Harvey Oswald in the telefilm "Fatal Deception." Other television credits include "Arms and the Man," "Beatrix Potter," "A Hazard of Hearts" as well as a guest appearance on "Miami Vice."

Her stage appearances include "Woman In White," "The Chalk Garden," "House of Bernarda Alba" and "Trelawny of the Wells."
