Dame Helen Mirren - Success comes with 'struggle'
Dame Helen Mirren says success comes with "struggle".
The 68-year-old actress - who is set to be honoured with the Fellowship Award at the BAFTAs tomorrow, for her contribution to the film industry - insists she has experienced both "glorious success" and "disastrous failure" in her career, but thinks her self-criticism has inspired her to keep trying.
Helen also insists a good work ethic, including being punctual and considerate, will help anyone make it in the industry.
Helen played Britain's Queen Elizabeth II in 'The Audience' - which won her a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress - and claims since then, she has become attached for the monarch.
