As you may have noticed, our website has got two completely new looks. I was asked about the pictures I used for the welcome message section and found that they were missing in our gallery. On those, Helen was pictured at the ITV studios following a guest appearance on ‘Lorraine‘ in on September 18 in 2014. I added those images to the image archive.

I usually don’t post paparazzi photos or candids that disturb Helen’s (and her family’s) privacy, but I think that those pictures are different. She interacted with the photographer and also posed for the camera.

Helen McCrory and Harry Potter co-star John Hurt (Ollivander) have received best acting nods for the 2016 BBC Audio Drama Awards.

Helen has been nominated for best actress in an audio drama, for her role in The Pumpkin Eater. The radio drama was produced in 15-minute episodes, which can be listened to on the BBC Radio 4 website. BBC Radio 4 describes the show, saying:

“Helen McCrory and Paul Ready star in Penelope Mortimer’s stark portrait of marriage and motherhood from 1962, dramatised by Georgia Fitch.

Mrs Armitage is encouraged by her successful screenwriter husband, Jake, to talk to a psychiatrist about her apparent compulsion to keep having children.”

The BBC Audio Drama Awards celebrate the range, originality and cut-through quality of audio drama on air and online and give recognition to the creativity of actors, writers, producers, sound designers and others who work in this genre. The short list for 2016 can be viewed here. The finalists will be announced on Tuesday 5 January, 2016.

Congratulations to Helen and her co-star!

BBC’s acclaimed crime drama Peaky Blinders is filming in Liverpool again – and this time it’s gone back to school.

The Peaky Blinders crew has moved in to the Blue Coat School in Wavertree for the next three days to film scenes for the third series of the gritty gangster series.

Starring actor Cillian Murphy as gang boss Tommy Shelby and Helen McCrory reprising her role as the family matriarch Polly, the post-World War I drama is returning after two previous location visits to the city.

Producers chose Liverpool for series one and two to recreate the show’s historical setting, with locations including Stanley Dock, Powis Street and Rodney Street.

For their latest shoot, they have moved out of the city centre and into Church Road where they are using Blue Coat’s Grade II listed building. Residents on the road, off Allerton Road, received letters telling them production crew would be arriving today to film in the school’s conference centre and beautiful octagonal domed chapel.

And again, I updated the photo gallery with new screen captures of Helen’s past projects. This time I uploaded over 200 MQ screen captures of Helen as Tabitha in the BBC TV mini-series Inside No. 9. She appeared in “The Harrowing“, the sixth episode of season 1 which was released in 2014.

I uploaded over 700 LQ screen captures of Helen in the ITV1 TV show Leaving which was released in 2012 and starred Helen as Julie. I’m currently trying to get the series in HD so I can replace the current LQ screen captures with high quality ones. Stay tuned!
