Today, we go back 43 years (!) to cover one of Helen’s very first jobs on television, BBC’s five-part miniseries “Cousin Bette”, based on Honore de Balzac’s novel. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills and screencaptures from all five episodes have been added to the gallery, and five clips have been added to the video archive.

    I remember seeing Cousin Bette on Masterpiece Theater on PBS when I was in high school. The show was great! It was the first time I’d ever seen Helen Mirren. I’ve been a fan ever since.
