Dame Helen Mirren Remembers ... As You Like It

Synopsis
Dame Helen Mirren looks back on one of her earliest television roles, playing Rosalind in the BBC’s 1978 production of the Shakespeare comedy As You Like It.

She shares her thoughts on the potential that As You Like It’s playing with gender could have for today’s audiences, reflects on the quality of the roles Shakespeare wrote for women and explains why she thinks the Bard will be as significant in 100 years’ time as he is today.
