British actress HELENA BONHAM CARTER has lent her talents to a wide array of diverse feature films such as David Fincher's provocative "Fight Club,” Tim Burton's new version of "Planet of the Apes” and the dark comedy "Novocaine” directed by David Atkins.

Her most recent film was David Yates' summer blockbuster "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” in which she played Bellatrix Lestrange. In 2005, Bonham Carter provided the voice for Lady Tottington in Nick Parker's animated feature film "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were- Rabbit” and the voice of the title role in Tim Burton's stop-motion animation feature "Corpse Bride.”

Other feature film credits include Hans Canosa's "Conversations with Other Women,” Burton's "Big Fish” (in which she played two roles, Jenny and The Witch), Michael Petroni's "Till Human Voices Wake Us” and the HBO film "Live from Baghdad” directed by Mick Jackson, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award. Other recent films include Paul Weiland's "Sixty Six” and Thaddeus O'Sullivan's "The Heart of Me.”

For her performance in Ian Softley's "Wings of the Dove,” she received a Best Actress nomination for an Academy Award®, as well as Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations. She received a Canadian Genie Award for Best Actress for Mort Ransen's "Margaret's Museum” and was also Emmy-nominated for her role in Steve Barron's miniseries "Merlin.”

On the last day of filming her screen debut in Trevor Nunn's "Lady Jane,” director James Ivory offered her the ingenue lead in "A Room with a View.” It was the first of a series of roles in E.M. Forster adaptations that would bring her international acclaim, and was followed by Charles Sturridge's "Where Angels Fear to Tread” and Ivory's "Howard's End.” She played Ophelia in Franco Zeffirelli's "Hamlet” opposite Mel Gibson, and portrayed Elizabeth in "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein” directed by Kenneth Branagh. She subsequently appeared as Woody Allen's wife in "Mighty Aphrodite.”

Bonham Carter's television appearances include "Magnificent 7,” which was inspired by the life of Jacqui Jackson, a mother with seven children, three normal daughters and four sons who are each in one form or another autistic; "Dancing Queen”; "Fatal Deception”; "A Dark Adapted Eye”; "Merlin”; and "Henry VIII.” Her stage credits include "Woman in White”; "The Chalk Garden”; "House of Bernarda Alba”; and "Trelawny of the Wells.”
