Dame Helen visited Colorado earlier this month to promote her new movie The Duke at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado.
The film, slated for release in February next year, follows the story of a taxi driver, Kempton Bunton, who steals Goya’s painting from the Duke of Wellington.
Dame Helen transforms into a vulgar cleaner Dorothy Bunton in a recent trailer for the newly released film, where she stars alongside Jim Broadbent (who plays Kempton).

Speaking of being a part of The Duke, she said earlier this year: “The whole story took me by surprise. You’d want to take it with a pinch of salt if all wasn’t true.
“I loved the charm of the script; it was sweet and very endearing. I like the 60s, it was a more naive, more innocent time.
“Dorothy is the practice, that the wife is so often in the family; she supports the family. Kempton is the dreamer, but he is very committed and courageous in many ways.
“We shouldn’t just take a leaf from Kempton’s book, but also from Dorothy’s book – dreaming is fine, but you still have to pay the bills!” So let’s hear it for practical people in life too.
“It’s very important when you play an old married couple that the audience believe in that relationship. With Jim, I slipped into his wife’s role very easily, there was no effort on my part.
