The third and final interview from our collection from Great Expectations is with the wonderfully talented Helena Bonham Carter who plays Miss Havisham. This latest adaption of the Charles Dickens classic is directed by Mike Newell who we had an interview with yesterday and can be seen here. We also have an interview with leading man Jeremy Irvine which can also be seen here.
Hilary Oliver interviews Helena where they discuss her take on the character, how she’s not as old as some people think she is and how’s she’s completely ‘barking’ mad! They discuss how they did the research into finding out what someone who had light depredation would feel and act like as well as having to act with completely stiff joints! They also talk about working through the David Nicholls and changing that from the original Dickens novel.
Great Expectations is released in the UK this coming Friday 30th November and our review of the film can be read here. If you want to know more about the movie, click here to see trailers, posters etc.
