With Stanley Baker in Thomas Middleton’s gothic tale “The Changeling”, the first of her many literature adaptations for the BBC. Opposite Nicol Williamson in the RSC adaptation of “Macbeth”. A promotional shoot that might have had its fair share in her image as the “Sex Queen of Stratford”.

After an absence of three years, Helen returned as a guest to the RSC, playing one of the most sought-after female roles in theatre: Lady Macbeth.

Helen was seen in three tv films, classical adaptations of “The Changeling” and “Mirabella”, as well as a hilarious double role in the series “Thriller”.
