Helen Mirren (and her never-ending supply of headbands) has been quite busy with interviews to promote her recent work, former directors and her celebrated tv work from the past. Last year, she participated in a BBC documentary on director Stephen Frears, whom she worked with on “The Queen”. Also for the BBC, Dame Helen sat down to talk about two of her literature adaptations from the 1970’s, “As You Like It” and “Blue Remembered Hills”, both programs entitled “Helen Mirren Remembers”. All three documentaries can be watched on-demand on the BBC website, unfortunately only if you live within the UK. Many thanks to my friend Alvaro for providing screencaptures of Helen’s appearances. “Golda” is also still making the rounds in the theaters, the latest market being Germany. For the film’s promotion, Helen did a new interview, which can be found in the photo gallery as well. Enjoy the new additions.

On Wednesday, Helen Mirren hosted the morning’s commemorative event from the seafront in Portsmouth, where the D-Day landings began 80 years ago, paying tribute to the bravery and achievements of veterans and recognising the invaluable work of those on the Home Front who helped make the wartime invasion possible. Later in the evening, Kirsty Young presented a live broadcast from both Normandy and Portsmouth. In France, the 4,600 headstones of those who fell on D-Day were individually illuminated across the Bayeux War Cemetery, accompanied by readings and music. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.
