Helena, 48, has joined the likes of Dominic West, Kirstie Allsop and Sophie Ellis Bextor, to raise awareness of the 17,000 children who die every day from preventable causes like pneumonia and malaria.

As part of the #CountdownToZero campaign stars posed with their hands shaped like a nought to show their support for the thousands of children dying needlessly every day and highlight the issue to world leaders.

In her shot, Helena poses in a figure-hugging black gown and holds her hand defiantly up in the air as she stares into the camera.

When Helena Bonham Carter was cast in the pivotal role of the Fairy Godmother in director Kenneth Branagh’s new live-action version of “Cinderella,” there were some rumblings of surprise on the Internet, where various journalists questioned whether she was better suited to play the wicked stepmother instead.

Given her past as deliciously evil Bellatrix Lestrange in the last four “Harry Potter” films and the delightfully funny but unforgiving Red Queen (“Off with their heads!”) in “Alice in Wonderland,” some thought that despite her experience with a wand, the magical staff that the Fairy Godmother was better suited for somebody not known for playing such dark characters.

Of course, those same people tend to forget just how versatile the two-time Oscar nominated actress really is. Whether it’s good or bad character, Bonham Carter has proven throughout her illustrious, 32-year screen career that she wherewithal to play them all. Still, Bonham told me in an exclusive U.S. interview, that she was taken aback when asked to play the character associated with the iconic phrase, “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.”

Pathe UK has released the first official teaser trailer for Sarah Gavron’s upcoming film Suffragette (2015), starring Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Carey Mulligan, Brendan Gleeson, and Natalie Press. The film will open in cinemas across the United Kingdom on October 30.

In the United States, the film will open in select theaters on October 23.

Official synopsis: A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

Actress says listening to Mozart and violin concertos had a profound effect on her unborn children.

The British actress, who is currently appearing as the Fairy Godmother in Disney’s new live-action version of Cinderella , is a big fan of classical music – for its calming influence.
When she was pregnant with her two children, Bonham Carter says she made use of the Tomatis Method, based on a theory that information coming into the foetus’s ear guides the development of the brain.
“I basically played Mozart and violin concertos again and again because it stimulated the inner ear of the unborn baby,” she says on this week’s edition of Charlotte Green’s Culture Club, (Sunday 29 March, 3pm).
“And everything that they promised happened to both my children. They came out alert, unbelievably clever, and very relaxed.”
