Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham

A few pics have been released of the new Great Expectations movie showing Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham.

Some, no doubt, will say that she's too young for the role. But this is mainly because she's generally played as old as she SEEMS, not as old as she IS. They could always have made her look older if they wanted to. I suppose they also could have simply had someone else play the part, but why in the WORLD would they want to do that if Carter was available? She could spent the rest of her life playing odd women from Dickens (and perhaps Lady Macbeth while she's at it.
