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.

The 69th Annual Tony Awards are taking place tonight. Helen Mirren is nominated as Best Actress in a Play for “The Audience”, and many outlets are predicting her to win. As Vulture writes, “Who will deny the Queen of England a Tony Award to go with her Oscar?” A Tony win would mean a triple crown for Mirren, joining the ranks of actors who have won an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy. In anticipation of tonight’s ceremony, clips of Helen’s previous Tony appearances – including nominations for 1995’s A Month in the Country and for 2001’s Dance of Death – have been added to the video archive. Look at the coincidence at the 2002 awards ceremony with the award being presented by Helen’s former partner, Liam Neeson and his wife, the late Natasha Richardson, who also happened to be Helen’s co-star in “The Comfort of Strangers”.
