Helen Miren, a lead actress in the previously mentioned Sky Atlantic/HBO’s miniseries, is staring as a titular Catherine the Great. I decided to pay my respects to the one actress I admired ever since I was four years old, so I attended the series premiere in London, UK.
When it comes to this role of Helen’s, I have an interesting, emotional story to share: Day before the premiere, Helen called me and asked whether I remember the conversation we had over a year ago. The conversation was about dream roles and whether there is even such a thing. She almost cried when she mentioned that this role was the role of her life.
So, I changed my schedule and made sure I was there to celebrate the role of her life. I couldn’t be more proud of her and her accomplishments. If you ask me, Helen is our empress of the entertainment industry.
