Fast 8 Adds Helen Mirren to the Cast

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJune 19th, 2016


As if the cast of the latest movie to come from the Fast and Furious franchise isn’t already star packed, the franchise now welcomes Dame Hellen Mirren to the family. Some may thing, how does an actor who played Queen Elizabeth II fit in to this genre of movie? Well, lets not forget Mirren has also played some bad ass roles in movies such as Red and Eye in the Sky, so action scenes are nothing new to the Dame.

According to Mirren who said back in 2014, “I’ve always rather loved driving. I said, ‘I’ll be in it, but only if I’m allowed to drive if I do drive in it.” She goes on to say, “I always love stunt driving. I do as much driving on my movies as I can. If there’s driving stuff to be done, I always beg or insist on doing it myself.”

Mirren is not only a fan of the franchise, but she’s a fan of Vin Diesel as well and would love to work with him. Well, it looks like her wish is granted. The eighth iteration of the Fast and Furious movies is shaping up to be another exiting movie to come.
