DAILY MUSE | Consummate actor Helen Mirren, and my favorite for the Academy Award for her role as “The Queen”, speaks with Charlie Rose. Watch it below. Her performance in the movie was uncanny- full with subtlety. However in the interview, Mirren makes an extraordinarily unsubtle comment that “perhaps the Queen is blessed with a lack of imagination”. I found it to be a stunning comment; I’ve never thought of a lack of imagination as a blessing. But there you have it! Watch it in the context of their conversation below. The interview is the second segment in the episode. You can forward to its beginning by moving the bar at the bottom to 33:30 minutes. The discussion leading to the comment above begins at about 39:30. (Interview link)
Helen Mirren is one of my favorite actors. Here is another interview with her I came across.
