40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Bellatrix is the Eldest of Three Daughters
Although it’s easy to miss this connection in the movies, Bellatrix actually has two siblings. One is Narcissa Malfoy, Draco’s mother. The other is Andromeda Tonks, Nymphadora Tonks’s mother. We get a few brief glimpses at Narcissa throughout the films, but we never meet Tonks’s mother. She’s only in one scene in the books, so it makes sense that she was cut out of the film.
Still, it’s a shame that we couldn’t get a little more back story on the history of Bellatrix’s family. Although Helena Bonham Carter‘s performance in the role is outstanding, she doesn’t have as much depth in the film as she does in the books.
