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.

The only thing better than finding a really great old television appearance you’ve been looking for is finding one that you didn’t even know existed. The Dick Cavett archive has posted a clip this week of Helen’s appearance on the show in 1995. It was a banner year in Helen’s career, having just appeared in the fourth cycle of “Prime Suspect”, being an Academy Award nominee for “The Madness of King George” and about to make her Broadway debut in “A Month in the Country”. In the clip above, they talk about all of the mentioned projects and lots more. The appearance has been added to the video archive with screencaptures being added to the photo gallery. Enjoy.

Something I completely forgot to cover for the site, probably because public appearances have become so rare these days. On July 05, Helen Mirren was honored at the 47th Flaiano International Awards in Abruzzo, Italy. “It is a great honor for me to receive this award, in the name of a giant of the Italian Cinena, Ennio Flaiano. I can’t say how important this award is to me. It was an Italian film, “The Adventure” with Monica Vitti that made me passionate about cinema. I was 16 and worked as a maid in my aunt’s small bed and breakfast, I saw the film in an old English cinema near the sea, on a rainy day. The beauty of the Italian language and the landscape have been formative for me, the mystery and magic have captured my imagination. I fell in love with cinema and the Italian language. I am attracted to the power of Italian directors such as Fellini, Visconti, Sergio Leone, Tinto Brass and Paolo Virzì with whom I have worked. My greatest muse is Anna Magnani, the Italian spirit has captured my artist’s heart, as years later I was captured by the landscapes of Salento, where I am a farmer and I greet all my neighbors in Tiggiano”. A couple of pictures from the press conference, ceremony and photoshoot have been added to the photo gallery.
