Welcome to the new version of The Helen Mirren Archives! The previous layout has become synonymous for the site due to it’s time being online and I really loved how the site has grown with this look. But with all the recent announcements of new projects and the upcoming releases of “The Leisure Seeker” and “Winchester”, I wanted to give the site a fresh new face. It has become quite a colorful new face as well 🙂 I hope you enjoy it. The photo gallery and video archive have received matching layouts as well and the career section has received a new feature, on which I’ve worked for a while now: the press section. On each film page, you will find a link to the press section in the sub-menu. Let’s take The Queen as an example: The new sub-site gives you a great overlook on the international press tours for the film, starting with the Venice Film Festival. There are radio interviews to listen to, talkshow appearances to watch and articles from all countries in the world. The wealth of material depends on how a film was promoted around the world – not every press tour was as extensive as Woman in Gold, for example, but there will be great discoveries, especially on her work in the 1980s and 1990s. So, head over to the career page, select a film and then simply click the press coverage to launch the new sites. I hope you enjoy browsing them as much as I do.

In the past few weeks, I have worked behind the scenes to bring a new, mobile friendly video archive to the Helen Mirren Archives. The old one has stopped working a while ago on mobile devices, so I’m happy to finally launch the new archive. All the clips from the old archive are uploaded, over 900 in total! And there are still a lot of additional clips waiting to be added. From Helen’s first appearance in 1967’s Herostratus to today’s releasing The Fate of the Furious, all of her projects are covered with trailers, featurettes – as well as talkshow appearances, awards ceremonies, news appearances and television specials. My thanks to MonicaN for providing the plugin. Enjoy!

Sad news today, apart from the Academy Awards nominations. Alan Rickman has died in London after losing a cancer battle at the age of 69. The British actor, known for his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films, died surrounded by friends and relatives. A statement from his family read: “The actor and director Alan Rickman has died from cancer at the age of 69. He was surrounded by family and friends.” Rickman played iconic roles in films including Die Hard, Robin Hood and Love Actually. The star was a long-standing member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and has won a number of awards including a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, an Emmy and a Screen Actors Guild Award. In 1998, Rickman and Helen Mirren performed Antony and Cleopatra at the National Theatre. Helen’s upcoming film “Eye in the Sky”, out on March 11, now has the sad distinction of being Alan Rickman’s last project. Entertainment Tonight has released a statement by Helen Mirren on Alan Rickman’s passing:

Alan was a towering person, physically, mentally and as an artist. He was utterly distinctive, with a voice that could suggest honey or a hidden stiletto blade, and the profile of a Roman Emperor. He was also a great friend, generous and social. He will be very missed by many. (Helen Mirren)
