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 celebrated range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Academy Award for The Queen, a Tony for The Audience, numerous Emmys, including for her iconic performance in Prime Suspect - and, since 2003, an appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Now in its fifth year online, The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and videos. Enjoy your stay, and check back soon.

Happy New Year everybody! Hope you have enjoyed the Holidays. It’s January and Hollywood is getting ready for awards season. The first stop this year was yesterday’s Palms Springs International Film Festival. Helen Mirren was on hand to introduce “Trumbo” co-star Bryan Cranston, who has received the festival’s spotlight award. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

Welcome to the new version of the Helen Mirren Archives. Hope you like it. All content is still up and the subpages will be converted as we speak. The photo gallery and video archive have matching looks and are ready to be added with more great finds. As the year is coming to an end I won’t be updating as much (except some production stills which will be added later), so we can start fresh in January when Helen will be part of the 2016 awards season with much buzz for her supporting role in “Trumbo”. Enjoy browsing around. P.S. Many thanks to Luciana from whom I’ve snatched the nice affiliates coding in the sidebar, couldn’t resist, thanks a lot!
