Designer Gary Graham has shared another beautiful photo of Helena!

We now have official confirmation from Helena’s agency, Conway van Gelder Grant, her PA, Donna Coulling, and also Helena’s friend, Allie Esiri that the account claiming to be Helena is a fake.
Jezebel reports that Helena is set to star in a new television mini-series based on Jami Attenberg‘s novel, Saint Mazie. Interestingly, Helena will also be producing the series, along with Suffragette producer, Faye Ward.
Helena will play Mazie Gordon-Phillips, who Attenberg described as a “deeply flawed, self-indulgent, extremely boozy” woman who had “quite a mouth on her.”
In a statement to Deadline, Faye Ward said:
“Our story unveils a woman in the middle of her life, a local legend who lifted the spirit of a community and yet barely moved beyond the perimeter of two square miles. She was in love with the streets and the people, she saw beauty in the dirt. It is exciting to think of Helena on screen oozing the spirit of this courageous woman. [Writer Clara Brennan’s] witty and political voice is perfect for Mazie and her world.”
The European premiere of Through the Looking Glass will be held tomorrow from 5:30pm in Leicester Square.
