Helen Mirren Biography

Dame Helen Lydia Mirren Born on July 26, 1945, in London, England, Helen Mirren pursued stage work before debuting in film during the ’60s. A versatile, highly-skilled actress, Mirren has starred in many movies, including CaligulaExcaliburCalendar Girls and The Last Station. She was lauded for her lead role in the series Prime Suspect and she’s portrayed Queen Elizabeth I and II, winning an Oscar for the latter roleShe was later cast as Alma Reville, the wife of director Alfred Hitchcock, in the 2012 biopic Hitchcock.

Mirren was attracted to theater at an early age, finding her inspiration at the age of 13 at an amateur production of Hamlet. “I was blown away by all this over-the-top drama,” she said in an interview with The Times UK. “We grew up without TV and never went to the cinema, so after Hamlet, all I wanted to do was get back into that world where all those fabulous things were possible.”

Mirren was steered away from the career by her parents and was instead sent to St. Bernard’s High School, a Catholic convent, in Southend-on-Sea. An English teacher at St. Bernard’s, who happened on a recruiting circular for the National Youth Theatre, urged Helen to audition for the troupe. She did, and at the age of 18 was accepted into the company. At the urgings of her mother, however, Mirren entered a London teaching college in order to learn a stable profession.
