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.

Many thanks to Joan for guiding me to a great archive of historical theatre information, including lots of unseen pictures of Helen during her years at the Royal Shakespeare company and beyond. All the information will be a great help to update the career pages in the coming days. For now, have a look at these wonderful stills from the classics – Antony and Cleopatra, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Macbeth, Henry V, Richard III and much more. For a complete list, have a look at the overview below. Enjoy!
