Helen McCrory

  1. Helena Bonham Carter, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2006.    Helen had played Tony Blair’s wife, Casanova’s mother and Tommy Cooper’s mistress, but was too pregnant to be Bellatrix Lestrange. Two year later, she was called back (by the same director David Yates) to be Bellatrix’s sister, Narcissa Malfoy, in the sixth chapter, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 2008, and the final two films in the franchise. Then, she joined James Bond in Skyfall, 2011, and, of course, Cillian Murphy’s Aunt Polly in Peaky Blinders, 2013-2019. She married Damien Lewis in 2007. They had two children: Manon and Gulliver.  The “heartbroken” Lewis  announced her death, at 52. “She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we loved her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you.”
