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 range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Oscar for The Queen, a Tony for The Audience, numerous Emmys - including for her iconic performance in Prime Suspect - and an appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and video clips.

Helen Mirren has promoted her involvement with The Prince’s Trust and its upcoming awards ceremony on today’s Good Morning Britain. She also talked about the pressure on young actors today because of the scrutiny of social media – so it’s quite telling that GMB chose to go with “Helen Mirren ” as their video headline. Go figure! Mirren explained it’s been amusing to run into the family since The Queen was released, and that Harry and William, in particular, seem to enjoy the oddness of it all. She said, “Prince Charles is very, very tactful. Harry and William have mentioned it to me and have been very funny and very cool about it.” Harry, she noted, likes to make jokes about it: “I think Harry once said, when I was at an awards ceremony, he said, ‘And Granny is here.’” How does Mirren feel about being called acting royalty? Of her reaction when faced with that description, she said, “Maybe for the first one second and then very quickly I disabuse them of that fact!” Screencaptures from the programme have been added to the photo gallery and the video has been archived as well.

Yesterday, Helen Mirren was among the guests on Graham Norton’s broadcast to promote the theatrical release of “Winchester”. Also on the show was former boyfriend Liam Neeson – sharing a couple of stories about meeting in Ireland while filming “Excalibur” and taking the train from Dublin to Belfast. The other guests were Jamie Dornan and Sigrid. This has been a fun interview, nothing special though, except a first look at either the final American poster or the UK poster for “Winchester”, which looks quite cool. You can watch the full show in the video archive, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
