For the past six decades, Helen Mirren's career has successfully shifted from a respected theatre actress to an iconic fixture on British television to a beloved Hollywood star. Her celebrated range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Academy Award for The Queen, a Tony for The Audience, numerous Emmys, including for her iconic performance in Prime Suspect - and, since 2003, an appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Now in its fifth year online, The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and videos. Enjoy your stay, and check back soon.

Here’s the second entry for Stage Sunday – Helen’s performance in Tom Kempinski’s 1991 farce “Sex Please, We’re Italian”. I don’t mean to do a disaster weekend – but after reviewing “Caligula” on Friday, “Sex Please, We’re Italian” stands in line with projects gone bad. The New York Times called it “one of the most spectacularly unfunny evenings the London theater has seen in decades”. More information on the play and its background can be found on the career page, production stills, rehearsals pictures and the programme have been added to the gallery.
