~British actress, Helena Bonham Carter was cast for her voice in "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance".

Many might be surprised to learn who tried out for the role of Sarah, in Jim Henson's Labyrinth.
Auditions started in the U.K. in April of 1984. On July 5th a “dark and cynical”, 18-year old Helena Bonham Carter auditioned along with nineteen other actresses. Bonham Carter was listed as a potential candidate, but it was thought best to have Sarah be played by an American actress.
