Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed their NYE celebrations, and wish you all the best for 2018.
My sincerest apologies for not posting this earlier – undoubtedly, you’ve already seen the new trailer for Ocean’s Eight, but if you haven’t, here it is!
Helena has signed a large Pudsey bear, which is being auctioned off to raise money for Children In Need.
Update: the bear sold for an impressive £217! Congratulations to the winning bidder!
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.
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.
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.
