The shoot with Helen McCrory was to take place at the end of a press day, after other shoots and interviews. Never ideal as the sitter is usually late and exhausted. This was no exception as far as timings were concerned, and as it was on my son’s birthday I was getting fidgety. But, this was an exception as far as energy levels were concerned. Helen turned up, apologetic for being late, polite, full of smiles and a bundle of energy. She had thrown a curve ball and won me over again within seconds of meeting her.
Helen is about my age, a mother of two and it is hard to imagine that she has ever been sexier. She has that sexy attitude that only comes with confidence due to experience and a classic beauty to back it all up.
Helen is an award winning actress and has played in films such as James Bond Skyfall, Harry Potter, Hugo and many more films and theatre productions. She is married to Damien Lewis, which gives her some kind unspoken respect and acceptance amongst us gingers. She is after all now a part of the ginger revolution.
It is nice when you leave a shoot and feel a lot has been contributed to it from all parties. This was one of those shoots – Helen came, gave all she could to the shoot, was friendly and modest and we all left feeling good at the end.
