Harry Potter casting news: Helena Bonham Carter returns

To no great surprise, Helena Bonham Carter has rejoined the cast for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth and almost final installment of the Harry Potter franchise.

The news comes from The Independent, which had this to say:

English rose Bonham Carter has most recently won plaudits for her portrayal of Harry Potter villain Bellatrix Lestrange, the female Death Eater (boo, hiss).

She is cast again for the sixth movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, scheduled to begin filming in two months for a November 2008 release. Her publicist said yesterday that Bonham Carter was not due back on the Potter set until the spring.

I just wish the movie had a different director...

I think that she rocks at it too! She was only inthe 5th film for 10 minutes and she played the part so well. Go Helena!
