“Helen understands the film set, I think, better than anyone I've ever worked with… She's able to bring such energy to the set, and somehow when you're working with her, everyone else brings their A-game, too.” - Director Philip Martin⠀ _⠀ Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke attend the Los Angeles premiere of the new HBO limited series "Catherine The Great" at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. | October 17, 2019 | 📷: @kopaloffphoto | @jeffkravitz | #FilmMagic for @HBO | #GettyEntertainment ⠀ _⠀ Click the link in our bio for more!
In the next snapshot, Helen was seen posing with Jason Clarke, who plays the role of Grigory Potemkin - a military commander who is Catherine's lover in the HBO miniseries.
According to News.com.au, "Catherine the Great" focuses on the life of Catherine II, who was the Empress of Russia from 1762 until 1796.
The German-born woman began ruling Russia after unseating her husband, Emperor Peter III – who was known to be a violent, drunken bully.
However, many people disregarded her success as they paid more attention to her sexual prowess. Historians claim that Catherine's sexual appetite was so insatiable that she was tempted to sleep with horses, which eventually played a part in her death.
While that rumor is yet to be confirmed, several fans stated that the story was started by misogynists who wanted to undermine Catherine's numerous achievements.
The 74-year-old kept true to her character's form as she arrived in a litter vehicle, which was carried by four men. The "Prime Suspect" star also kept it classy in her navy colored peplum blouse with a square neckline.
For the bottoms, the award-winner had on a pair of flared trousers, which hid her black heels, and she accessorized with diamond and topaz dangle earrings, that matched her dramatic choker necklace.The "Hobbs and Shaw" screen goddess revealed during a recent interview that she is looking forward to the finished product of the miniseries mainly because she worked so hard to bring the character of Catherine to life.
