LIVE from the NYPL: Helen Mirren | Paul Holdengräber

Share

Going back to her start with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the career of acclaimed actress Helen Mirren has been punctuated by the works of legendary poet, playwright, and actor William Shakespeare. Now, to help mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, Mirren comes to LIVE to reflect on the legacy of the prolific playwright. 

Helen Mirren is one of the best known and most respected actresses with an international career that spans stage, screen and television and has won many awards for her powerful and versatile performances, including the Academy Award in 2007 for her performance in The Queen.
