Meeting the Queen in Jerusalem

Dame Helen Mirren is the only actress in the world who could discuss the complexity of performing Shakespeare on film, her portrayals of Queen Elizabeth II on stage and on screen, and her excitement at appearing in the next installment of The Fast and the Furious series.

Mirren, who was in Israel to emcee the presentation of the Genesis Award to violinist, educator and human rights activist Itzhak Perlman, spoke about these and other topics in an appearance at the Jerusalem Cinematheque Wednesday night. She received a standing ovation at the packed auditorium.

The Genesis Prize, dubbed the “Jewish Nobel,” was awarded on Thursday night in Jerusalem.
