To launch all last added pictures, click any of the previews below.

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!

Today, Helen Mirren turns 70. This is not only a landmark in her life, but it also marks the 50th anniversary of her career. In 1965, Helen made a splash with the lead role in the National Youth Theatre’s production of “Antony and Cleopatra”, which led to a decade-long involvement with the Royal Shakespeare. Today, 50 years later, Helen is just as in demand as she was those years ago. She is one of the very few women in Hollywood capable to successfully open a film on her name (“Woman in Gold”), not to mention a successful Broadway play. The year brought her one of the industries’ biggest honors, the Tony Award. And there’s no slowing down with two projects to be released later in the year. What’s more to simply say: Happy Birthday, Helen Mirren!

With only two “Prime Suspect”s to go, today’s spotlight is the second last installment of the series, 2003’s “The Last Witness” – another masterful part of the show. To learn more about this episode, visit the career page. Stills, promotionals and screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery. Four clips have been added to the video archive.

As you might have noticed, there are some changes on the Helen Mirren Archives. First, there’s a new look, with another focus on Helen’s memorable screen performances. Although the site is online for over a year now and most of Helen’s career has been covered, the site still feels like a work in progress. There is still so much planned and untested, so be prepared for more changes and additions in 2015. Since my friend Claudia has decided to close her Helen Mirren tribute, Mirror on Mirren, I’ve decided to expand the gallery content with public appearances and more, so Claudia’s hard work won’t be lost. As this will take some time, I’ve started with the most recent events in 2014. Just click any of the previews below to launch the last added galleries.
