Helen Mirren on Alan Rickman in 'Eye in the Sky': 'He Would Be Very Proud'

Helen Mirren premieres her new film Eye In The Sky on Sunday (April 11) in London, England.

The 70-year-old actress was joined on the red carpet by actors Colin Firth and Phoebe Fox.

Eye in the Sky also stars the late Alan Rickman.

On The Graham Norton Show, Helen said, “I think it’s a movie he would be very proud of in the sense that he would appreciate what the film was about and the way it tells its story. It doesn’t take sides, it makes no moral decisions. It just throws out moral questions.”

“What I love about the film is it’s Alan as I knew Alan. I mean he was a brilliant character actor — we see him in Harry Potter and Die Hard playing these extraordinary characters. That is Alan [in Eye in the Sky] as he really is: funny, urbane, intelligent, very human. So, it’s really great to see him up there,” Helen added.
