Helena Bonham Carter on her character Bellatrix
He yelped as he was dragged quickly forward, his wand still pointed ahead of him in hopes of being able to defend himself. “Yeah. I do. And my spell work’s gotten a lot better since then.” Harry spat maliciously, remembering clearly what he had done to Amycus Carrow so many years before.
"Little bitty baby Potter thinks he’s so grown up…Amycus Carrow isn’t someone you boast about poking. They got their teaching positions because I had better things to do…"
Harry Potter 3/5
Sky laughed loudly once noticing the girl’s actions, it was entertaining to see, when fist seeing Bellatrix she was in a rotten mood however now all she could in response was laugh at the whole conversation in general. Her intention was to never make her cousin angry nor annoy her at all however seeing her in such a state was so different to anything she had ever seen before, it was hard not to watch and find it hilarious. “I’m s-sorry.” She whispered whilst attempting to keep control of herself.
"What are you laughing about?"said Bellatrix squinting at her. She shook her head again."Is that the only way I can help people feel better? By having them laugh at me?" She was more confused than frustrated. She pursed her lips. "Oh. No. Don’t stop on my account.Should I go now that you’re less… distraught?"She didn’t actually think she had been distraught.
I did what I could. I never abandoned her or forced her to take the mark. I’ve done what I could to keep her safe. She is my sister.
And you’re saying that I made her take the mark? That I didn’t keep her safe enough?
No, that’s not what I’m saying.Unless she has the mark and I’ve just never noticed. Which I would have.I’m saying she deserved better than both of us.
"One might compare your sudden bursts of passion to Isabella’s perkiness," Jocelyn smirked, sipping at her liquor. "In fact, your apparent apathy baffles me. Tell me what that mother of yours has managed to do!"
"My apathy? What apathy? My reaction to being in this situation? Isabella Goyle isn’t doing anything wrong no matter what my feelings on what she is doing are,"said Bellatrix. "I wouldn’t compare my ‘bursts of passion’ as you put it to her behavior. Perkiness wins you nothing, but favor. Being me wins me nothing.I don’t have thing handed to me because I’m pretty and perky."
"Excuse me, Bellatrix, but that is no way to speak to me"
Bellatrix stood. “If I had known it was you,I would not have said it.”
— “Nice to see you, too, Bells.”
"Don’t call me that, anymore. We’re not children."
