Although their characters are not on the best of terms in the reel life, Hathaway, who has worked with Bonham Carter, who plays ‘Iracebeth’ or the ‘Red Queen’ in the film, in other projects outside the Alice franchise, absolutely adores the actor in real life.
“One of the reasons I was so excited to come back is because I was going to spend time with Helena,” Hathaway said in a statement.
“She is so much fun. She is so smart, witty and inventive. Acting with her is such a treat because you don’t know what she is going to do from one take to another, so you just feel like you are going to play.
And she loves to laugh, we would often laugh together – we had a great time doing the film,” she added. Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Alice in Wonderland, also stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen.
The film releases in India on May 27.
