Helena made a name for herself in her early acting days starringing in costume dramas, particularly Merchant-Ivory films such as A Room With A View and Howard's End. Her Oscar nominations both came for similar genre movies in Wings Of The Dove and The King's Speech. But if anything, she has become best known in recent years for the sort of ditzy roles which suit her personality, generally opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton movies like Corpse Bride, Dark Shjadows and Alice In Wonderland. She met Burton, after a five year relationship with actor Kenneth Branagh, while filming Planet Of The Apes. They became a couple, had two children and lived together for over a decade until an amicable split in 2014. Other prominent movies include Les Misérables, Cinderella and playing Bellatrix Lestrange in the final four Harry Potter films. Posh totty Helena has happily bared all for her art when she believes the role merits it.
