Make Room for the Class Act Among Teen Movie Queens
Bonham Carter feels otherwise. Making movies makes her nervous. Aside from a TV commercial and a small TV role, she had never before acted. "I feel frustrated by my lack of experience," she says. Offscreen, her garb suggests a suffragette with hypothermia. Big sweaters. Long skirts. Thick socks. Sturdy boots. "I think a glamorous life-style is ultimately unrewarding," she says.
Her conservatism is inbred. A great-grandfather, Herbert Henry Asquith, was a Prime Minister; a grandmother, Lady Violet Bonham Carter, was a member of the House of Lords. Helena respects that tradition. She doesn't feel her style cramped by sharing her parents' eight-bedroom home near Hampstead Heath. Her mother works as a part-time psychotherapist; her father, a former merchant banker, is now confined to a wheelchair after a brain-tumor operation six years ago.
Helena, who has two older brothers, admits that doing two films took time away from finding boyfriends. "I missed out a bit," she allows. Her new career also has interrupted school friendships and her education. British universities must move aside for acting classes since Helena is now determined "to make a go of it." She frets, though, about a "meteoric rise" followed by a "bumpy ride down. I don't want to end up like John Travolta."
