Helena Bonham Carter, with her chameleonic ability to metamorphose into any role she undertakes, stands as one of the most versatile and captivating actors of her generation. Her distinctive flair, which oscillates between the delightfully whimsical and the profoundly intense, has graced both independent art-house projects and major blockbuster films. With a career spanning decades, Bonham Carter’s performances, characterised by their depth and authenticity, have not only enthralled audiences but also garnered critical acclaim worldwide.
In my case, she won me over with her performance as Marla Singer. This is a cover story for The Sunday Times photographed in The London Library where she serves as its first female President.
