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.

A little bit of everything has been added to the photo gallery this morning, from recent magazine covers to theatre pictures from the 60s! But in order: Helen graces the cover of the May 2018 issue of Woman & Home in the United Kingdom, which is on newsstands now. She has also been featured in the April 2018 issue of the Australian Mindfood magazine and in the March 2018 issue of Sweden’s Sondag magazine. A couple of fantastic additional editorial pictures have been added, as well as two teriffic finds of Helen’s very first steps on the stage. In 1965, after a well received debut as Cleopatra with the National Youth Theatre, Helen transmitted to Manchester’s Century Theatre and played her first professional roles under the direction of Braham Murray – in O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” and in Michael Meyer’s “The Ortolan”. Pictures from both plays have been added to the photo gallery. Enjoy your weekend!
