Dame Helen Mirren is impressing audiences and critics for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II once again, but this time it is not on the screen it is on the stage.
The play is the Peter Morgan’s the Audience, directed by Stephen Daldry playing at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in New York. Helen Mirren sparkles in the role of the Queen for which she won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Elizabeth in “The Queen” in 2006. The movie was also written by Peter Morgan.
Now the 69-year-old year old actress has also been nominated for a Tony Award for best actress in a play. It would be an incredible achievement to win both an Oscar and a Tony for the same character and not just any character, the current reigning monarch of Mirren’s home country!
