Sarah Cooper’s new comedy special on Netflix includes a skit in which she and Helen Mirren parody Donald Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood tape. In 2016, an Access Hollywood outtake from 2005 resurfaced, in which the future president boasted about his ability to sexually harass and assault women, saying: “Grab them by the p***y.” The show’s co-host Billy Bush could be heard laughing along. In the new Netflix special, Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine, Cooper offers an “exclusive look” at Trump and Bush’s conversation. The skit sees Cooper lip-sync the role of Trump, while Bush is played by Mirren. In a review for Vanity Fair, Yohana Desta said Mirren “gamely embodies the weaselly Bush, egging Trump on”. The LA Times’s Robert Lloyd, meanwhile, called the re-enactment “somehow even more disturbing than the real thing”. Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine is out now on Netflix.

As I was browsing my files to add a couple additional production stills to the photo gallery, I realised how many new/old pictures I have found since the last update from a wide range of nearly 60 productions, starting with her theatre work to her most recent film projects. So, in order to give all added pictures a deserving spotlight, the image additions have been split into three parts, 20 per update. Here’s the first part with mostly Helen’s theatre work in the ’60s and ’70s, including some great additions from her time at the Lyric Theatre Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as her television work for the BBC.
