Character type: Eccentric, if not full-on batshit crazy, woman
The King's Speech excluded, for the past decade or so, Tim Burton's better half has had the lock on crazy girls interrupted, so much so that her casting as fan favorite Harry Potterfoe Bellatrix Lestrange was a layup/no-brainer.
On the screen, she's almost always gothed out, hair out-of-control frizzy, with a "fuck society" attitude, or at the very least, simply super weird. Hilariously enough, it's hubby Burton that enables her static character selection the most. At least her acclaim for The King's Speech proved that she does indeed have other tricks up her sleeve—whenever she feels like using them.
