Helen Mirren was a surprise guest at Friday’s Combate Tahoe at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harvey’s in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, applauding bantamweight champion Gustavo Lopez, who unleashed a right hook from hell to knock Joey Ruquet out on his feet, the challenger falling slowly to the canvas in a frightening manner just one minute, 45 seconds into the bout. Lopez retained his title with the vicious first-round KO in the main event. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

Over the last couple of weeks I found quite some new material on last year’s “The Leisure Seeker”, so time for a proper update. While the film didn’t make a lasting impression with theatergoers due to its limited release, it has some kind of second-life since its DVD release. Videos and screencaptures from the making of and an interview with Helen and Donald Sutherland have been added, alongside additional production stills and on-set pictures. Also – I have no idea how this has passed by without any notice – Helen promoted the film’s release on The Today Show in January 2018. A full video and screencaptures from this appearance have been added as well. If you haven’t seen the film yet, it’s highly recommended.

After her award-winning performances as Elizabeth I. and Elizabeth II., Dame Helen Mirren is adding another commanding and unforgettable royal ruler to her glittering CV as she heads the cast of Sky Atlantic’s sumptuous drama “Catherine the Great”. The four-part series, which has been filmed in Russia, Latvia and Lithuania, follows the formidable 18th century Russian empress’ dramatic later years as she tranforms her nation into one of Europe’s greatest powers. All the political and sexual intrigue surrounding Catherine’s colorful court is also brought to life, including her passionate and complex romance with military leader Grigory Potemkin (Jascon Clarke), who helps her bring Russia to glory. Gina McKee (Bodyguard) co-stars as Catherine’s confidant and lady-in-waiting Countess Braskovya Bruce and Rory Kinnear is shrewd politian Nikita Panin, the governor to her son Paul (Joseph Quinn). Richard Roxburgh, Kevin McNally, Paul Ritter and Paul Kaye also feature. “Catherine rewrote the rules of governance by a woman and succeeded to the extent of having the word ‘great’ attached to her name”, explains Mirren, who thinks the drama will offer a new take on the empress. “History tried to drag Catherine down. I hope we are going to reinstate her reputation as the incredible leader that she was”.

At 73, Helen Mirren has learnt a few things about life… finding power in insecurity, why marriage is ultimately the right choice and the joy of a good charity job. With her return to television imminent – playing Catherine the Great in a new miniseries – Emma Clifton looks at the wisdom, worries and loves of the illustrous star. Helen Mirren often makes headlines, and because she’s Helen Mirren, there’s always a feisty coolness to the story behind the news. Recently, there was one such moment when she was asked if she had any regrets about how she has been treated as a young actress. “Being old is cool, but, oh, how I wish I were 18 now with the strength and courage to say ‘Fuck Off,” she said. “If I could go back and tell my younger self anything, it would be this: “Darling, learn these two words: Fuck. Off. All my life I never learnt to say those words, I just learned to be nice, to play along”.
