Helena Bonham Carter has a penchant for playing oddball characters, and she sure has found one in her next project: Carter is set to play Miss Havisham in the upcoming adaptation of 'Great Expectations.' For those of you who haven't read the book, Miss Havisham is a spinster who sits in her mansion day and night wearing the wedding dress she was supposed to get married in before her fiance left her at the altar. This explains why Carter looks so kooky in the first photos from the film, which you can check out below. This version of the Charles Dickens classic also stars Ralph Fiennes, meaning 'Great Expectations' will be a mini-'Harry Potter' reunion for Lord Voldemort and Bellatrix LeStrange.
