It was confirmed today that actor, Alan Rickman has passed away. Rickman starred alongside Helena in a few films over the years, most notably as Severus Snape in Harry Potter.
Alan Rickman, one of the best-loved and most warmly admired British actors of the past 30 years, has died in London aged 69. His death was confirmed on Thursday by his family who said that he died “surrounded by family and friends”. Rickman had been suffering from cancer. The Guardian
I am snowed under with assignments, but the end is in sight so lots of stuff coming soon!
I have added 2 HQ photos of Helena at the International Holocaust Remembrance Day Reception at 10 Downing Street, where she and other commissioners met with Holocaust survivors.
Another year is drawing to a close, and we would like to share with you our highlights. Feel free to share your own memories of 2013 with us on the chatboard – they can be Helena-related or personal!
Happy New Year fellow Helena-fans, we hope that 2014 will be a great year for you all! And of course, Happy New Year to Helena & family xxx
Well, there were very few actual magazine interviews this year, but we did get treated to a wonderful edition of Vogue, filled with stunning shots by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. I also loved the short-but-sweet interview in the Guardian Weekend magazine, with Burton and Taylor co-star, Dominic West (photographed by Gustavo Papaleo).
I have added 1 MQ shot from Helena’s shoot for Time Out London, photographed by Phil Fisk.
Helena graces the cover of Bulgarian magazine Жената днес this month! The magazine features previously unseen photos from the shoot by Greg Williams.
A very happy birthday to our wonderful Helena, who is 47 today! We all hope that Helena had a lovely day with friends and family.
You may have already seen it on Tumblr, but just in case you haven’t: Daniella is organising a fan book for Helena’s birthday this year! If you would like to take part, you can read the guidelines here. All entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (please don’t send them to myself or Jamie – it’s not us this year!).
The deadline for getting your entries in is 12th May.
So it turns out that some of the outfits that Helena was seen wearing in her recent photoshoot are from the 2013 Pre-Fall Collection by Alexander McQueen. We’re still none-the-wiser as to where or when the final shots will appear, but I thought I’d share! There are several others in the collection that I find would really suit Helena, so I hope they let her dress up in some more!
Edit: thank you to Emily for sending us a link to TheFashPack which says that the shoot is for an upcoming issue of British Vogue magazine. Even better, she may even be on the cover!
