Helen Mirren describes her character in ‘Solos’
Solos is an anthology series in which actors act alone or with a disembodied voice. Most essentially the characters talk to themselves. The episodes of Mirren involve a study that sends senior citizens to space. The actress mentioned she loved the “sensitivity and the beauty” of the writing. Meanwhile, she was also surprised that a man wrote a piece that felt so understanding of women. Moreover, she also appreciated her character Peg who is so apologetic. She described her British character Peg saying:
“My husband is American and if he wants something at a restaurant, he’ll say ‘I want a water.’ And I’ll say, ‘Excuse me, I’m terribly sorry to bother you. It’s alright if you’re busy but if you’re not, if you could possibly get me a glass of water, it would be absolutely brilliant.”
As the character had a very different kind of approach which made her understand the character very much.
