She won an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II, but Dame Helen Mirren is taking on a very different role for her next project.
The actress is starring as the madam in charge of America's first legalised brothel, it has been revealed.
She will play Grace Botempo, a fictional character based on the real-life story of Sally Conforte, who opened the Mustang Ranch bordello in Nevada in 1971.
"It was a beautifully written character, which was why I wanted to play her, and the film really appealed to me," Helen says.
"I love the subject matter, I love the milieu and I love the period - the Seventies."
