Entertainment Weekly has a bit on Helen Mirren’s interview on Netflix’ The Hollywood Masters. No stranger to portraying real-life figures, Helen Mirren may have her eyes set on her next “Shakespearean character.” “I’d be so funny as Trump. I love it. I’ve almost got the hair. Yes, of course, I mean, what a fascinating character. What an extraordinary character. I mean, that’s a character isn’t it, the real thing? I would say real life is so much more interesting than anything you can make up. But you know, a fantastic sort of slightly Shakespearean character. He may have a Shakespearean fall, I don’t know, but he is an extraordinary character.” When asked if she thought it would be difficult to penetrate Donald Trump’s psychology, the Academy Award winner says her portrayal of the president would start by looking into his background. “I don’t think that would be too difficult to penetrate quite honestly,” she opined. “You look at the upbringing. You look at the schooling, the father, the mother. I don’t know much about Mr.Trump’s background, but if I was to play him, I would definitely start there… That’s what you have to start with, the child, and the child is very much in Trump.” Mirren’s next film, The Leisure Seeker, opens in theaters on Jan. 19.

Yesterday, Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford have attended the South Coast Plaza 50th Anniversary Gala celebration on Monday night. The festivities took place at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, where Henry’s widow Elizabeth Segerstrom hosted a concert by the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, presented by The Philharmonic Society of Orange County. Conducted by maestro Valery Gergiev, a close friend of Henry Segerstrom’s, the program featured Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Piano Concerto No. 3” performed by Denis Matsuev. The event drew art world luminaries including Ralph Fiennes, Plácido Domingo, Frank Gehry and Bill Viola, who were seated in the president’s circle with Elizabeth Segerstrom and Princess Michael of Kent. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.

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.
