This morning we told you about actress Helen Mirren walked out of her theatre to tell some drummers to stop playing as people in the theatre where fining it hard to hear the show .
When Helen was talking to the drummer she slipped a few f-words in during her sentence and now she has apologizes for saying the naughty words.
The drummer where trying to get some attention for their LGBT pride festival called As One In The Park. And Helen is all for that.
Mirren wanted the drummer to know that she has nothing against their cause just wanted them to stop due to the people that brought tickets to the show and could not hear a thing.
This is what the actress had to say:
“The irony is I love drumming and I love drummers. In another situation I would have been out here enjoying it with all the punters. Unfortunately, I was having to do a play at the same time.”
Thankfully the drummer understood and came back a few nights later to say a big sorry to Helen.
Helen then walked out of the theatre with a T-shirt saying on the back:
“Yes Please! Just not outside a theatre!”
It a good job that they did understand and no one fell out over the drumming
On Saturday Helen Mirren was playing her role of playing Queen Elizabeth II at the Gielgud Theatre in London when a group of drummers that where playing outside of the theatre.
One in the Park who were promoting their festival for gay and transgender people that is due to take place later this month said that Helen was dressed in pearls and a tiara when she demanded the noise stop.
In a statement from the festival said:
“Clearly angered she shrieked ‘Quiet! I’m trying to do a play in here! People have paid a lot of money for tickets’.”
Actor Rufus Wright who is playing prime minister, David Cameron, in the production told the drummer to be quies in Twitter as he said:
“Just fulfilled a lifelong ambition by bellowing at 25 drummers to shut the fuck up. West End theatres got thin walls.”
“You should have seen Helen. She came out in full Queen costume and shouted at the drummers too. Honestly. It was breathtaking.”
Mark Williams from festival organisers Orange Nation said in a statement:
“Obviously we are terribly upset if we caused her any distress. If she’d like to let her hair down and attend the festival she’d be more than welcome.”
