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.

Today’s spotlight features a magnificent early performance in the 1974 “Thriller” episode “A Coffin for the Bride”. It’s impossible to review this one without spoiling the story (just look at the pictures), so I won’t even try. Helen wonderfully plays a double role as a young artist and an obnoxious loud old broad. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills and screencaptures have been added to the gallery. And four clips have been added to the video archive.
