If you’ve ever wanted to know what it takes to win an Oscar or create an iconic sketch show character then you’re in luck because Barnardo’s is making dreams come true.
The leading children’s charity has teamed up with some of the UK’s most loved stars to help banish the lockdown blues with its Fifteen Minutes with Fame prize draw.
Winners really can have a one to one chat with Oscar-winner Dame Helen Mirren or actor and author David Walliams.
These celebrities are the latest Barnardo’s ambassadors and supporters who are offering members of the public the chance to win a 15 minute video call with them. Big names already offering calls include Dame Emma Thompson, Russell Howard, Catherine Tate, Jamie Vardy and Lennie James, with more to follow in the coming weeks.
Each entry costs £5 and all proceeds go to the Barnardo’s emergency appeal, to help the charity continue its vital work supporting vulnerable families across the UK during these very challenging times.
Dame Helen Mirren said: “In partnership with Barnardo’s I am offering one of you the exclusive opportunity to join me for a Q&A over video conference, with all the money raised going towards their coronavirus appeal, helping them continue their vital work with the UK’s most vulnerable children.
“You will have the chance to ask me a series of questions – they could be about a role I’ve played, about becoming an actor or actress or anything else that you’ve always wanted to ask about my work – within reason of course!
“Just click the link to find out how to enter. I look forward to meeting you – see you soon!”
David Walliams said: “I’m working with Barnardo’s to give you the chance to have a special one to one video chat with me. Perhaps if you have children I could read them a bedtime story, or you can ask me questions – or if you really want I can dance for you like a monkey!”

Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said: “The vulnerable children Barnardo’s supports need us now more than ever. We’re working round the clock to adapt our vital services, so we can continue to help children and families – whether face to face, on the phone or through an App.
“But we cannot do this alone, and with our shops closed and major events cancelled, we’re more reliant than ever on the generosity of our friends and supporters, as well as the British public. This is why I’m so grateful to our fantastic ambassadors and supporters, and to everyone bidding for 15 Minutes with Fame. The funds raised will help make sure we can support vulnerable children through this crisis.”
I apologize for the lack of updates, but with this pandemic no one goes out (thankfully!) and there’s not many news. So I am going back into the archive and uploading movies caps and stills that are missing from gallery.
Here are two movies Helen Mirren did in 2001 “The Pledge” and 2003 “Calendar Girls”. Enjoy!
Finally it’s here, the whole article of Helen Mirren for Vogue Germany scanned and also the outtakes attached. Enjoy!
Have a first look at Vogue Germany May 2020 issue with several covers among which one with Helen Mirren. The issue will be out on newsstands on April 7th.
During these sensitive times, during which I’m hopeful no events will be organized, we can focus on career project and keep going on filling the gallery with missing images.
Starting from HD screencaptures of Helen Mirren in the TV Movie “Phil Spector”. Take a look and enjoy!
A drama centered on the relationship between Phil Spector and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden while the music business legend was on trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson.
I updated the video vault with 3 videos – two commercials and one bts interview – of Helen Mirren for the new L’Oreal Paris. Take a look and enjoy!
