Dame Helen Mirren greets me enthusiastically on the phone from New York City after a day of promotion for her latest thriller, The Good Liar, in anticipation of digitally featuring as Flaunt’s first Annual Icon. I’m over 3000 miles away in Manchester, England. The first thing Mirren wants to talk about is not her current film, nor her other high-profile role in HBO’s Catherine the Great which is currently airing, but Manchester—the city where she arrived as a young actress in 1965. Mirren eventually returned to the city 26-years-later for her life-changing, BAFTA and Emmy winning performance as Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect. “I owe Manchester a great deal,” Mirren says fondly. “I had my very first professional job in Manchester and of course Prime Suspect came out of Manchester and it was filmed there too. I hold it very close to my heart.” For a time in the late 1960s, Manchester was a home-away-from-home for Mirren as she appeared in several Braham Murray-directed plays at the city’s Century Theatre. Her initial route in came via the UK’s Youth Theatre scheme where those without the means to afford astronomical drama school fees were supported into a career in the arts via a vocational route. “I was dying to go to RADA but I couldn’t,” Mirren says, sadly. Yet her talents were quickly spotted: months later she was hired by the Royal Shakespeare Company where she soon became one of the company’s most acclaimed actors. Eventually, Mirren appeared on prime-time British television where her gritty portrayal of the ambitious Tennison—one of the first female detective chief inspectors of the metropolitan police—changed her career forever: it changed the face of women on screen forever too.

During an onstage chat at the “Helen Mirren and Hawk Koch Discuss The Magic of Movies” event on Friday hosted by the SAG/AFTRA Foundation and the Producers Guild of America, Mirren regaled the audience with the story of being invited to tea at the Queen’s Sandringham estate, as reported by People. “She invited me for tea,” said Mirren, assuming she would be attending a large event. “I thought it was going to be in a room with 200 other people, which it often is. I’ve met her once before and it was in a room with 200 other people. So I said, ‘Oh well I can manage that.’ So it was at the horsey place and the message came to me that the Queen would like to invite you to tea, she knows you’re here. So I walk in, and there’s like eight people sitting around a table. Prince Philip, the Queen, a Sheik of somewhere or other and a couple of horsey people. I know absolutely nothing about horses, at all, and the Queen knows everything about horses. Then I got a cup of tea and the Queen, in particular, was having a very intense conversation about what’s in the sandwiches with Prince Philip, very important. ‘What is this? What’s in here?’” Mirren explained. “The milk is on the other side of Prince Philip and I want some milk in my tea, but my brain goes completely dead and I cannot remember how to address Prince Philip. I mean, is it sir? Is it your majesty? Is it your highness? Is it rude to ask him to pass the milk? Or should I just ask for a lackey? I finished up not having any milk. I just couldn’t sort it out. It’s a lesson in embarrassment, but they were lovely, they were utterly gracious,” she said. Pictures from the discussion panel have been added to the photo gallery.

To promote their new film, the actors took to the Broadway stage, and the cast turned their cheeky banter into an impromptu love song. “We are so outside of our comfort zones,” Helen Mirren was saying as she sat with Ian McKellen onstage at the Booth Theater on Sunday night. The two are no strangers to the New York stage; Mirren, 74, and McKellen, 80, played opposite each other in a Broadway production of “Dance of Death” in 2001. But this time, they were the surprise guests at “Freestyle Love Supreme,” the improvisational hip-hop comedy show that was co-created by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The esteemed British actors, co-stars in the forthcoming film “The Good Liar,” didn’t rap; instead, they were interviewed by the show’s M.C., Anthony Veneziale, about their personal and professional camaraderie, and the result was turned into an impromptu love song by the regular cast onstage. The fact that “Helen” and “McKellen” rhyme was not lost on the rappers. A complete bit on the evening can be read over at The New York Times, while pictures have been added to the photo gallery.
