Christopher PlummerChristopher Plummer has enjoyed 50 years as one of the most distinguished actors in English-language theatre and cinema. A Canadian from Montreal, Plummer made his professional debut on stage and radio in both French and English, and ever has since appeared in well over 100 motion pictures.

Since his New York debut (1954) he has starred in many prestigious Broadway productions, including his Tony winning performances in Cyrano (1973) and Barrymore (1997), and more recently as King Lear at Lincoln Center (2004). In 2007, Plummer starred in the successful Broadway revival of Inherit the Wind (2007), which earned him his seventh Tony nomination.

He has been a leading actor at Great Britain’s National Theatre under Sir Laurence Olivier, the Royal Shakespeare Company under Sir Peter Hall, and in its formative years, the Stratford Festival of Canada under Sir Tyrone Guthrie and his mentor Michael Langham. During his career in the theatre he has portrayed most of the great roles in the classic repertoire.

Helen Mirren
Helen Mirren is one of the best-known and most respected actresses with an international career that spans stage, screen and television, she has become renowned for tackling challenging roles and has won many awards for her powerful and versatile performances. This was never more so the case than with her recent role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen, for which she won an Academy Award, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe together with numerous other awards from all over the world.

In the same year she filmed The Queen, Mirren won recognition for two other performances. For HBO, she portrayed Queen Elizabeth I in the miniseries Elizabeth I, winning an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award. Mirren also reprised her old role as Detective Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect: The Final Act, the last installment in the PBS series. The performance earned her an Emmy and also a Golden Globe nomination – but she lost to herself, for her role as Elizabeth 1.

Mirren’s film career began in the late 1960s with Michael Powell’s Age of Consent playing opposite James Mason. Her breakthrough role though was in John Mackenzie’s iconic film The Long Good Friday. After this Mirren starred in numerous acclaimed films including John Boorman’s fantasy adventure Excalibur and Neil Jordan’s Irish thriller Cal which earned her the Best Actress Award at the Cannes film festival in 1984. She continued to push boundaries in films that include Peter Weir’s The Mosquito Coast, Peter Greenaway’s The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover, Charles Sturridge’s Where Angels Fear to Tread and Terry George’s Some Mother’s Son, which she also co-produced. Her more recent films include Calendar Girls, Shadowboxer, Inkheart and National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
