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.
