Actress Helen Mirren Visits Israel


Award winning actress Helen Mirren, who starred in The Queen, Red, and Woman in Gold, visits City of David and Old City of Jerusalem.

Starring in dozens of films in a career spanning 50 years, Mirren has in numerous occasions taken roles in movies with a Jewish angle.

Some of them include The Prince of Egypt, an animated retelling of the Exodus from Egypt; The Debt, where Mirren played a retired Mossad agent charged with hunting a Nazi war criminal; and Woman in Gold, the true story of a Holocaust refugee struggling to reclaim her family’s property.

Mirren’s visit on Wednesday began in the ancient City of David near the Old City of Jerusalem, the area believed to have been the site of the city of Jerusalem during the First Temple period.

The actress explored the City of David National Park, concluding the tour beneath Robinson’s Arch near the Kotel.
