On Tuesday, the cast of the Paramount+ “Yellowstone” prequel series (Helen Mirren, Brandon Sklenar and Aminah Nieves) were joined by members of the show’s crafts team (including editor Chad Galster, production designer Cary White and assistant costume designer Samantha Pavlat) for a discussion with TheWrap. They gathered for the event (which is part of our 2023 Awards Season Screening Series) and shared stories about the making of the first season, working with creator Taylor Sheridan and the complexities of a historical drama that stretches across three storylines. They also contemplated what could be in store for the show’s second season, which is currently in the works. As it turns out, they couldn’t speculate much because nobody has seen a script and Sheridan isn’t letting anything slip. But they’re all very excited to return. Sklenar joked that he is ready to (finally) be back on the ranch and share some scenes with Ford.

The BAFTAs were handed out yesterday, and Helen Mirren was among the attendees for a special tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. Prince William, BAFTA’s president, was in the audience with wife Kate Middleton. Mirren said: “Cinema at its best does what Her Majesty did effortlessly – bring us together and unite us through a story. Your Majesty, you were our nation’s leading star. “On behalf of BAFTA, thank you for all that you have done for our film and television industry.” “BAFTA’s relationship with Her Majesty was longstanding and BAFTA would not be what it is today without her loyal support,” she added. As we speak, Helen Mirren is in Berlin for the world-premiere of “Golda” – so, lots of updates will be following by the end of this week.
