Helena Bonham Carter on deciding to become an actress: "I remember wanting to become an actress since about five years old. I blame a lot of it on an actress friend called Lisa Harrow who swept into our lives about then. She seemed impossibly glamorous and beautiful...I still wonder today if Lisa had been a plumber, my life would have taken a different turn."
