Helen Elizabeth McCrory[1][2] (born 17 August 1968) is a British actress. She portrayed Cherie Blair in both the 2006 film The Queen and the 2010 film The Special Relationship. She also portrayed Narcissa Malfoy in the final three Harry Potter films. In 2011, she starred in Martin Scorsese's family mystery film Hugo as Mama Jeanne.



McCrory was born in Paddington, London. Her mother, Anne (née Morgans), is Welsh, and her father, Ian McCrory, is a Glasgow-born diplomat.[3] She is the eldest of three children and was educated at Queenswood, a Hertfordshire boarding school, before spending a year living in Italy, and after returning to England, she began studying acting at Drama Centre London


In 2002, McCrory was nominated for a London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actress (for playing Elena in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya at the Donmar Warehouse).[citation needed] She was later nominated for a 2006 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for her role as Rosalind in As You Like It, in London's West End.[citation needed] In April, 2008, she made a "compelling" Rebecca West in a production of Ibsen's Rosmersholm at the Almeida Theatre, London.[5]
She appeared in Charles II: The Power and The Passion (2003), as Barbara Villiers, Countess of Castlemaine, and in supporting roles in such films as Interview with the Vampire (1994), Charlotte Gray (2001), The Count of Monte Cristo (2002), and Casanova (2005). In The Queen (2006) she played Cherie Blair, a role she reprised in Peter Morgan's follow up, The Special Relationship.[6]
She appeared in a modernised TV adaptation of Frankenstein's Monster, simply called Frankenstein. Her first pregnancy forced her to pull out of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), in which she had been cast as Bellatrix Lestrange. (She was replaced by Helena Bonham Carter.) However, McCrory later played Bellatrix's sister Narcissa Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, released in July 2009.[7][8] McCrory also reprised her role in the final movies, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2. She also played Rosanna Calvierri in the episode "The Vampires of Venice" of the BBC television show, Doctor Who.
McCrory will appear in The Last of the Haussmans at the Royal National Theatre beginning 12 June 2012. The production will be broadcast to cinemas around the world on 11 October 2012 through the National Theatre Live program me


On 4 July 2007, McCrory married actor Damian Lewis, and they have a daughter, Manon (b. 2006), and a son, Gulliver (b. 2007).[10] They live in Tufnell Park, London, and Los Angeles. She is an Honorary Patron of the London children's charity Scene & Hear
