Helena Bonham Carter to appear in BBC TV spy thrillers

It has recently been announced that Helena Bonham Carter, who portrays Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter films, will play an MI5 agent in two thrillers produced by BBC TV.

The two films, called Turks & Caicos and Salting the Battlefield, are part of The Worricker Trilogy. The first part of the trilogy, called Page Eight and starring Rachel Weisz, aired two years ago. Little is known about Helena’s role in the film other than that she is an MI5 agent – we’ll have to tune in to learn more about her role in the film! Filming on Turks and Caicos is set to begin later this month, and filming should be completed on both installments by September.

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
