The birthday celebration for Helen Mirren continues. Madame Tussauds in London has held a special treat for the actress on Thursday, combining the three wax figures that were sculptured between 2010 and 2013 – featuring one of Helen herself, one of her in character as The Queen and one in character as Jane Tennison. Pictures from the celebration have been added to the photo gallery.
