Helena has signed a large Pudsey bear, which is being auctioned off to raise money for Children In Need.
Helena has narrated a film entitled Saying Goodbye for this year’s Children In Need.
Saying Goodbye features the stories of a group of children and young people in the UK dealing with the terminal illness or death of a parent.
The King’s Speech actress said: “It’s a privilege to be able to be involved with such a heart-rending film which shares such honest and important stories from children and young people as they cope with death of a parent or are facing this possibility.
“I hope this film strikes a chord with people across the UK and encourages them to donate to BBC Children In Need to enable the charity to continue to support children and young people who need it most.”
The film will air at 10.45pm on Tuesday 14th November on BBC1.
I have added some stunning portraits of Helena at the Toronto International Film Festival, photographed by Jennifer Roberts.

Sorry I wasn’t around yesterday for the premiere – I was climbing a mountain! Anyway, I have added a bunch of photos of Helena attending the world premiere of 55 Steps at the Toronto International Film Festival last night. She looks absolutely fabulous in a Dolce & Gabbana floral dress, teamed with a cute D&G clutch.
55 Steps will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which takes place 7th to 17th September. TIFF have released the first clip from the film, which you can watch below:
Helena has been a little quiet in terms of public appearances of late – most likely she is focusing on her current projects. This has been a blessing for me as life has been a little hectic and I’ve not had much time to post updates. As way of apology, here are some new-old portraits of Helena from the 1992 Cannes Film Festival.
We would like to wish Helena a very happy birthday, and hope she had a fantastic day with friends and family.
The first production still from 55 Steps has been released (credit: HBC_Group).
Below is a photo of some of the cast and crew on the set at MMC Studios in Cologne last year.
The BBC are releasing The Vision on DVD! It is already available for pre-order an will be released 12th June in the UK.
Helena played Dirk Bogarde’s daughter, Jo Marriner, in the television drama, which was originally broadcast as part of BBC2’s Screen Two series.
