Yesterday, Helena was in Germany to attend the premiere of 55 Steps, also known as Eleanor & Colette. Helena is wearing a silk top and skirt by Claire Barrow.
It is now official – Helena will take over from Vanessa Kirby playing Princess Margaret in Netflix’s The Crown!
The first promotional poster for 55 Steps has been released – albeit under a different name! The film will be titled Eleanor & Colette when it is released in Germany in May. Interestingly, this was the intended title of the film when it was initially offered to Helena in 2006 – Helena was set to play Hilary Swank‘s role of Colette, while Susan Sarandon would play Eleanor.
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 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.
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:
