London: Helena Bonham Carter’s role as Alice In Wonderland``s Red Queen silenced her – literally.

The actress spent so much time screaming as the Red Queen, she was hoarse by lunchtime on most days.

Bonham Carter revealed that she had to spend hours dubbing her tantrums after the filming had wrapped - because she sounded croaky in so many scenes.

"I lost my voice... and I did lots of dubbing because a lot of the time you can hear that my voice is cracked. But I think she would probably be like that because if you scream all the time you are going to have a cracked voice," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
