Update: The mean stepsisters of Cinderella are usually depicted as ugly, but the makeup people will just have to get to work this time. Sophie McShera ("Downton Abbey") and Holliday Grainger (Anna Karenina, pictured left) will play Drizella and Noemie. It's a reunion for Grainger and Helena Bonham Carter, they worked together in last year's Great Expectations. It's also going to be a lot of fun for McShera and Lily James, who plays Cinderella. In their show "Downton Abbey," James plays nobility and McShera plays a kitchen maid - it will be fun for them to switch roles!
June 21, 2013 - Disney is definitely going against type for its live-action Cinderella. Helena Bonham Carter, who is known for playing wacky and often evil characters, will play Cinderella's Fairy Godmother. Bonham Carter played The Red Queen in Disney's live-action Alice in Wonderland and Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter movies.
