Helena Bonham Carter to narrate child bereavement doc

UPI News Service, 11/05/2017 

Helena Bonham Carter has signed on to narrate "Saying Goodbye," a BBC Children in Need documentary about kids dealing with the deaths of their parents.

The film is to debut Nov. 14 on BBC One.

"I am delighted to be on board with this year's BBC Children in Need Appeal and to narrate 'Saying Goodbye.' It's a privilege to be able to be involved with such a heart-rending film which shares such honest and important stories from children and young people as they cope with death of a parent or are facing this possibility," Carter said in a statement.

"I hope this film strikes a chord with people across the United Kingdom and encourages them to donate to BBC Children in Need to enable the charity to continue to support children and young people who need it most."

"Coping with the bereavement of a loved one at any age is difficult, but the loss of a loved one at a young age can be particularly hard. In the United Kingdom, a young person under the age of 18 will have to deal with a death in the family every 22 minutes," added director Nick Read.

"With so many children and young people experiencing or preparing for bereavement we feel this film importantly sheds a light on their challenges. It also highlights the need for projects such as those funded by BBC Children in Need which offers bereaved children and young people support through these difficult times."

Carter's credits include the "Harry Potter" franchise, "The King's Speech" and "Alice in Wonderland."
