She’s done really interesting films - she’s like the female Johnny Depp. She could be Hollywood, but it’s the film choices she’s made that set her apart. And what I love about her is that she has her own style, she loves what she loves and she’s an incredibly confident woman, but she’s totally up for change. Most celebrities want to repeat what they’ve honed and are comfortable in, but she’s up for doing anything which is unusual in an actress. - Lucinda Chambers

No but her acting was so good in this scene that I had to pause and zoom in on her face to make sure it wasn’t actually Emma in makeup, and even then I wasn’t totally convinced.
Emma acted out the scene first, and then Helena Bonham Carter mimicked what she did. so it was Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Emma Watson pretending to be Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Bellatrix pretending to be Hermione pretending to be Bellatrix.
I figured that’s how they did these kind of scenes.
