Helena Bonham Carter Biography

Bonham Carter stepped up to modern roles in a big way in 1995, when she appeared as Woody Allen's wife in Mighty Aphrodite. She then had the title role in Margaret's Museum, in which she gave a powerful performance as a coal miner's wife driven to madness by various tragedies visited upon her. In 1997, she won acclaim for her performance in Iain Softley's adaptation of The Wings of The Dove, scoring a Best Actress Oscar nomination in the process.

After playing a woman stricken with Lou Gehrig's Disease opposite off-screen partner Kenneth Branagh in The Theory of Flight and appearing with Richard E. Grant in A Merry War, Bonham Carter landed one of her most talked-about roles in David Fincher's Fight Club. As the object of Brad Pitt's and Edward Norton's desires, the actress exchanged hair extensions and Victorian mannerisms for a shock of spiky hair and American dysfunction.

Novocaine, opening September 14, is the latest movie for Helena. Bonham Carter's Pre-Raphaelite beauty made her a natural for the movie set when the British Empire reigned and the sight of a bare ankle could induce convulsions. However, the actress, once dubbed by critic Richard Corliss "our modern antique goddess," managed to escape from Planet Merchant Ivory and, while still performing in a number of period pieces, eventually become recognized as an actress capable of portraying thoroughly modern characters.

Bonham Carter is a descendent of the British aristocracy -- both social and cinematic. The great-granddaughter of P.M. Lord Herbert Asquith and the grandniece of director Anthony Asquith, she was born to a banker father and a Spanish psychotherapist mother on May 26, 1966 in London. Although her heritage may have been defined by wealth and power, Bonham Carter's upbringing was fraught with misfortune, from her father's paralysis following a botched surgery to her mother's nervous breakdown when the actress was in her teens.

She made her screen debut in 1985, playing the ill-fated title character of Trevor Nunn's Lady Jane. Starring opposite Cary Elwes as her equally ill-fated lover, Bonham Carter made enough of an impression as the 16th century teen queen to catch the attention of director James Ivory and producer Ismail Merchant, who cast her as the protagonist of their 1986 adaptation of E.M. Forster's A Room With a View. The film proved a great critical success, winning 8 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. The accolades surrounding it provided its young star with her first real taste of fame, as well as steady work: deciding to concentrate on her acting career, Bonham Carter dropped out of Cambridge University, where she had been enrolled.
