Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren starred as Elizabeth, alongside Jeremy Irons as Robert Dudley, in the award-winning 2007 drama Elizabeth I. This mini-series portrays the Queen's personal life in the latter years of her reign, focussing on her relationship with Dudley and his step-son, the Earl of Essex. Mirren gives a strong and convincing performance.

Joely Richardson

Joely Richardson starred as Queen Elizabeth in the 2011 film Anonymous. While the portrayal of the Queen is very far fetched, the film is an interesting take on the Shakespearean Authorship Question.

Richardson's mother, Vanessa Redgrave, plays the older Queen.
