An intelligent, versatile actress, Mirren performed on the British stage during the 1960s and 1970s, playing Ophelia, Cleopatra, and other challenging roles.

Mirren's portrayal of hard-bitten police inspector Jane Tennison in the PBS series Prime Suspect (1992 and ongoing) has brought her great popularity stateside, as well as winning her an Emmy.
