Helen Mirren wants Elizabeth I artefact

Aug 3 2013, 5:31am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Dame Helen Mirren would love to own a handwritten note by Queen Elizabeth I.

The regal actress - who has played both Elizabeth I and reigning British queen, Elizabeth II - feels a great affinity with the monarchs having portrayed them on screen and stage, and thinks it would be "incredible" to own something that was written by the famous royal.

Quizzed what extravagant purchase she would like to make, she said: "I think that I'm inspired by... I think a hand-written parchment from Elizabeth 1st. I mean, to own a piece of history like that would be so incredible. Maybe one of her letters to her ambassadors, you know, rejecting the hand of the King of Spain or something like that would be great."

The 68-year-old star reprises her role as sharpshooting assassin Victoria in action movie, 'RED 2', and the film even pays homage to her royal roles.

In one scene, Helen's character poses as a delusional woman who thinks she's the queen in order to gain access to a psychiatric hospital.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I think the writers had written this ... they thought it was very funny of course that I would pretend to be the queen. I think I suggested that it should be Elizabeth the 1st, who I have played, and I thought that would be a funnier sort of take than being the present queen. One forgets how these things come about, but certainly the writers had thought it would be hysterical to see me pretend to be the queen."

'RED 2' is in cinemas now.
