DANIEL RADCLIFFE SAD TO LEAVE HARRY POTTER BEHIND
Daniel Radcliffe has spent the past decade in the limelight playing the title role in the ‘Harry Potter’ film series, but the actor will soon be closing the curtain on the part that made him famous. In an interview with MTV, Radcliffe described his feelings about leaving the bespectacled boy wizard behind.
Radcliffe, who has been busy filming the two-part ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,’ the final installments in the series, says of leaving the role, “I did have a moment the other day in the makeup room, that I have been in for 10 years now… I did walk in and go, ‘Wow, this is [hitting me]. One day — in about four or five months from now — I’m gonna walk in here for the last time.'”

WICKED ROLES ARE BONHAM CARTER’S ‘CUP OF TEA’
LOS ANGELES – Once a corset queen in prim, proper costume dramas, Helena Bonham Carter has spent her time lately playing all manner of foul women.
Fanatic Bellatrix Lestrange, a disciple of evil Lord Voldemort in the “Harry Potter” movies. Vile Mrs. Lovett, who grinds murder victims up as meat for pies in “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” A crazy old witch with an eyepatch and hair as brittle as straw in “Big Fish.”
Now Bonham Carter’s playing the bratty Red Queen in “Alice in Wonderland,” digital wizardry giving her a monstrously bulbous head atop a tiny body as she repeatedly shouts with glee, “Off with their heads!”
“I am playing lots of villains. It’s horrible. Serial killer, sadist. But I think it’s the age, you know. That’s what you get over 40, maybe,” Bonham Carter, 43, said in an interview. Shifting into a shrill hag’s voice, she adds: “Ooh, she’s aging. She must be evil. She looks like a witch.”
In the final two “Harry Potter” movies, coming this November and in July 2011, Bonham Carter takes Bellatrix’s nastiness to new heights, including torturing Harry’s pal Hermione (Emma Watson).
