40 British Actors and Actresses From Time Past and What They’re up to These Days

Helen Mirren (Born in 1945) – The Queen

British actress Helen Mirren made history as the only actor to have played both Elizabeth I and Elizabeth II on screen. And she must have done well enough to earn a DBE from Queen Elizabeth in 2003. Those roles were a far cry from the minor roles she had landed when she first began acting in the ’60s.

Her acting spans a wide range of characters. So you can see her in the romantic comedy “Hitchcock.” But if action movies are more your style, her roles in the “Red” and “Fast & Furious” franchises would be appealing. In 2022, she played “The Spider” in “Sniff.”
