Carter plays Bellatrix Lestrange, a powerfully dangerous and connected Death Eater close to Voldemort’s inner circle in this action film directed by David Yates based on the book by J.K. Rowling, where she must finish the establishment of Voldemort’s rule over the wizarding and muggle world as Harry Potter and his allies close in on the Dark Lord’s weaknesses. Co-starring Dan Radcliffe and Ralph Fiennes.
You tend to shoot for months and get cut out of most of the movie. But this last time I learned to stick my head very close to one of the three — you know, Emma or Daniel or Rupert. I was always saying, ‘I’m not going to be cut out this time!’ It’s self-preservation in the Potter films.
