She was promoting her new film The Duke which follows the story of a taxi driver, Kempton Bunton who steals Goya’s painting of The Duke Of Wellington.
And Helen transforms into dowdy cleaner Dorothy Bunton in a recent trailer of the newly-released film, where she stars alongside Jim Broadbent (who plays Kempton).
Speaking about being part of The Duke, she said earlier this year: ‘The whole story took me by surprise. You would want to take it with a pinch of salt if it wasn’t all true.
‘I loved the charm of the script; it was sweet and very endearing. I love the 1960s, it was a more naïve, innocent time.

‘Dorothy is the practical one, which the woman so often is in the family; she is keeping the family going. Kempton is the dreamer, but he is very committed and courageous in many ways.
‘We should not only take a leaf out of Kempton’s book, but also Dorothy’s – dreaming is all very well, but you still need to pay the bills! So, let’s hear it for the practical people in life too.
‘It’s very important when playing an old married couple that the audience believe that relationship. With Jim, I slipped into the role of his wife very easily, there was no effort on my part.’
Helen also gushed about the film’s director Roger Michell as she said: ‘The nature of the story depicted in the film is very similar to Roger – it has his gentleness, his wonderful sense of humour and his wise acceptance of life.
‘The material and the man himself really meld together and it manifests itself in the way he works on set.’
The Duke is a moving true story that celebrates a man who was determined to live a meaningful life.
Set in 1961, it follows the story of Kempton, a 60-year old taxi driver, who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first, and remains the only theft in the Gallery’s history.
Kempton proceeded to send ransom notes declaring that he would only return the painting on the condition that the government invest more in care for the elderly, specifically bringing attention to his long running campaign for pensioners to receive free television.
What happened next is the stuff of legends. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge and it was revealed that Kempton had spun a web of lies.

The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage – how and why he used the Duke to achieve this, is a wonderfully uplifting tale that will be seen on film for the first time.
Starring Academy Award winners Jim and Helen, The Duke has been directed by Bafta winner Roger (of Notting Hill fame) from a screenplay by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.
The uplifting dramatic comedy had its World Premiere at last year’s Venice Film Festival where it was received to critical acclaim.
The Duke is a Pathé, Ingenious Media and Screen Yorkshire presentation of a Neon Films Production.
Nicky Bentham is the Producer and the Executive Producers are Cameron McCracken and Jenny Borgars for Pathé, Andrea Scarso for Ingenious Media, Hugo Heppell for Screen Yorkshire, Peter Scarf and Christopher Bunton.
