Helen Mirren

Dame Helen Lydia Mirren, DBE, is an English actor. Mirren has won an Academy Award, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards, and two Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards. In 2003, she received a damehood for services to the performing arts at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Mirren began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the latter half of the 1960s. From her very first film appearance, Mirren displayed the overtly sensual screen persona that would become her trademark. Other early movies included O Lucky Man!, Excalibur and The Long Good Friday.
During her career, she has portrayed three British queens in different films and television series: Elizabeth I in the television series Elizabeth I, for which she received Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress, Elizabeth II in The Queen, which won her the Academy and BAFTA Award for Best Actress, and Queen Charlotte in The Madness of King George, for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She is the only actress ever to have portrayed both Queens Elizabeth on the screen.
