On Thursday, Helen Mirren stopped by “The Talk” on CBS to promote the Audible premiere of “Moriarty: The Silent Order”. She talked about voicing Lady Milverton and joked about the possibility of joining the EGOT ranks in case of a Grammy win for her performance. A clip of her appearance can be found in the video archive with screencaptures being added to the photo gallery.
“I play sort of an arch villainous [Lady Milverton] really. I’ve always wanted to play an arch villainous. I was rather cross that I was never asked in any of the Bond movies to be like the big villain…so it was a wonderful opportunity.” Host Jerry O’Connell asks, “You have Emmy, an Oscar and a Tony – is this our Grammy? Are we getting that EGOT?” “Wouldn’t that be lovely. There are so many brilliant actresses who can also sing, and I want to kill them because I can’t sing at all.” Mirren adds, “I’m never going to win my Grammy from singing…They often win a Grammy for writing a book, then reading it, a sort of tell all book.” She jokes, “My Sex Life by Helen Mirren.” (Helen Mirren, The Talk, November 09, 2023)
