While in London recently promoting their new film “Sweeney Todd,” reports that actors Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter also mentioned their roles in the Harry Potter films. Actress Helena Bonham Carter states yet again that she will be back as Bellatrix Lestrange filming “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” in February of 2008. Alan Rickman was described as “reticent” to discuss his role as Professor Severus Snape, however the actor “laughed about the recent rumor of a JK Rowling inspired musical; “who is shoving that around?” He also joked about an adult film version of the series making the rounds as well.

Sweeny Todd was the best. I’m disappointed, because this article was posted so long ago they no longer have the full Alan Rickman article up. I would have loved to read that.
