Dame Helen Mirren 'unsure' over Queen return

PanARMENIAN.Net - Dame Helen Mirren has admitted she felt "very unsure" about reprising her Oscar-winning role as The Queen in an upcoming West End play, BBC News reported.

"I don't like going back to things," the 67-year-old revealed at the European Film Awards in Malta, where she received an honorary award.

"I like to go forward."

Written by Peter Morgan, who also wrote The Queen, The Audience examines the monarch's relationship with the Prime Ministers who served during her reign.

"The play's not really about The Queen. It's more about Britain in the 20th Century," said Dame Helen.

"It's an extraordinary way of looking at the history of Britain and it's an extraordinary team of artists who are putting the play together."

Directed by Stephen Daldry, The Audience opens in February at the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End.
