For the past six decades, Dame Helen Mirren's career has successfully shifted from a respected theatre actress to an iconic figure on British television to a beloved Hollywood star. Her range of work in film, television and the theatre has earned her an Academy Award, Emmys and Baftas. The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and video clips. Enjoy your stay
The Helen Mirren Archives has covered each of Helen's films and television projects with extensive background information, rare pictures, production notes, reviews and video clips. Click any of the previews for each spotlight.

Another decade has been added to the public appearances, covering 1980 to 1989. Lots of great images to be discovered. In the 1980s, Helen was still mostly known for her theatre work, a four-year relationship with Liam Neeson and a first try to make it in Hollywood (to lesser success than her British theatre work, except for meeting future husband Taylor Hackford). Have a look at Helen throughout the years by clicking any of the previews below. The next update will cover both the 1970s and 1960s and will complete the public appearances albums.

Today, public appearances pictures from 1990 to 1999 have been added to the photo gallery. It’ll be difficult to put this decade in only a few sentences – Helen had her breakthrough with “Prime Suspect”, for which she received 3 consecutive BAFTA Awards and an Emmy, her first Oscar nomination for “The Madness of King George”, Tony nomination for “A Month in the Country”, a Golden Globe for “Losing Chase” and another Emmy for “The Passion of Ayn Rand”. To launch all new galleries, click any of the previews below. The 1980s will follow next, as I’m eager to finish the public appearances and start with the articles and scans (the last remaining part of the photo gallery to be added). Enjoy the new pictures.

Pictures of Helen’s recent appearances at the New York pre-release screening of “Spectre” as well as the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science’s 7th Annual Governors Awards have been added to the photo gallery. To launch the new pictures, simply click the previews below.

“Woman in Gold” has kept Helen Mirren busy throughout the year – from its world-premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February to the most recent promotional tours in Italy and Japan for the film’s theatrical October release. It has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray in most European countries. Blu-Ray screencaptures from both the film and the making of featurette have been added to the photo gallery.

As you can see, the public appearances pictures have been updated in big steps (basically because there less pictures from the early 2000s). Another batch, including public appearances from 2000 to 2002 have been added. With this update, the 2000s are complete. Next up will be the 90s, so check back soon.
