In her first-ever online class, Academy Award winning actress Helen Mirren shares the techniques that she has learned through the course of her international career that has spanned stage, screen, and television. Her powerful and versatile performances have earned her numerous awards, including the Academy Award in 2007 for her performance in The Queen, a Tony Award in 2015 for her performance in The Audience, and four Emmy Awards.  

In her class, Helen Mirren will discuss the dualism that is core to her acting method: the necessity for mastering technique (craft), and then letting go of that technique so that your imagination can take over (art). Lessons include how to break down a script, conduct research for real and fictional characters, approach the more “poetic” aspects of character, make thoughtful decisions on costume, and handle props in a way that is true to your character.

While helping you develop your own acting talent, Helen will take you behind the scenes of her greatest roles, including Elizabeth II in The Queen, Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect, and Prospero in The Tempest. 

In Helen’s online class, learn about: 

Researching Characters
Breaking Down Scripts
Creating Characters Through Hair and Makeup
Creating Characters Through Costume
Characterizing Sets
Camera Technique
Performing Shakespeare
Collaborating With Writers & Directors

I have the feeling you need to know this, the problem here is very terrible, the feeling I get from you is consistent with the flow of the times in this time. If you are divided, it is safest to live in colder climates. The safest place with me is the most terrible. It's hard for me to scare, to be fair to you. It's easier. But accepting and trying harder does it have another meaning that I care about. Equal
I use google, forgive me. Your fans ^ _ ^

I always wanted to be an actress since 8 years old now I’m 25 ,no for the fame no for the money every time I see a movie I see more than the scenes I think about everything behind it ,production ,music how the actor or actress put the emotion in my heart . This give me hope because I can’t afford acting school, but how much I want this it’s out of this world.

we the people of Nepal where there is no physical connection to the any of the access to the world class educations of any of such such subjects we'd like to attain. So I think and eager to expect that if such a platform like online education be accessible to us, specially like the one like me, It would be a great thing. Hope the worldwide platform will have serious consideration on this matter.

Helen is beautiful, but these 'masterclasses' are silly

Hrvoje Bazina - 2017-12-14

Susan Bell - 2017-12-05
Are there any fashionistas out there, I want the dress Helen is wearing, anyone know the designer?

SilkSatin Paradise - 2017-12-05
The more talented the actor, the less likely we are to know what they're really like.

Michael Calabretta - 2017-12-04
Anyone know the background music thats play

PurpleFlame3 - 2017-12-03

bitu mishra - 2017-12-02
For god sake give something for free please at least one episode.

surfitlive - 2017-11-30
This is how you do it.
You go from showing your B+ tits and C level acting, then GROW to D size tits and A Level acting!

All women are looked at for the outer beauty, thats natural human nature, but the inside shows through and carries you further than the outward appearance.

Hone your craft and don't be stuck only on your looks or even lack thereof.
Many actors who are NOT eye candy but people love because they give their all and bring something to the table so we can feast.

The Great Dame Helen Mirren, the femaNAzis need to learn from you.

Jeffryth Sneider - 2017-11-27
Sorry, what is the song

Brent Cruz - 2017-11-27

Jalex / Alex Call - 2017-11-21
I noticed this one replaced Spacey.

Lee Milby - 2017-11-21
omg that walk was actually amazing. As a director you always see how people get a little silly in front of cameras. It's a different thing from being unaware of the camera or temporarily ignoring the camera between takes. Intentional naturalism is extremely difficult.

Tasster - 2017-11-21
Can't wait for this class! Can we have a voice-acting course? I know there are so many legends out there, but I think that would be an exciting class!

Xiomara Bernard - 2017-11-20
