Dame Helen Mirren won't ever play Queen Elizabeth II again as she doesn't want to be remembered as the monarch.

The 72-year-old actress has drawn the line at playing the British monarch twice as she worries people will think she and the Queen are the same person.

She said: "I wanted to kind of get away from that. I like to move forward, not back. It's wonderful that I [portrayed Queen Elizabeth twice], it was wonderful that it was a success, but I didn't want a headline when I'm knocked over by a bus to read 'The Queen Knocked Over by Bus.'"

And Mirren absolutely loves Claire Foy's portrayal of a young queen in the television series 'The Crown'.

Lewis Morgan has medical ahead of Celtic move

  Lewis Morgan has medical ahead of Celtic move Celtic are rapidly closing in on St Mirren winger Lewis Morgan as he arrived for his medical on Thursday morning. According to the BBC, the fee for Morgan will be in the region of £300,000 and he’s likely to return on loan to the Paisley side until the end of the season. The Scotland U21 international has helped St Mirren to the top of the Championship and currently has 13 league goals. The 21-year-old made his debut for his current side back in 2014 – against Celtic – and his contract is set to expire this summer. Morgan has his medical tests at Ross Hall hospital where it’s thought everything went according to plan. Speaking just last week, he said: “Hopefully I can go out with a bang, hopefully with a title. I’m hoping St Mirren go up and that’d be great way to end everything.” St Mirren sit three points clear at the top of the Scottish second tier, with promotion looking a realistic proposition. Upon deal completion, Brendan Rodgers would have added his second new player to his squad during January, after centre back Marvin Compper joined the Hoops from RB Leipzig for a reported £1m fee.

Dame Helen Mirren as HM the Queen in 'The Audience'. Dame Helen Mirren ’s Play Breaks Cinema Records. And it seems that the pull of seeing Dame Helen play Her Majesty once again was so great, it broke the current record for tickets sold to this kind of a thing.

Dame Helen Mirren ’s trophy cabinet should open up a separate wing just for awards she has received for playing Queen Elizabeth II. Accepting her award at last night’s ceremony in New York, Helen was quick to credit her source material, saying “Your Majesty, you did it again .”

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show, she added: "I think the show is incredibly accurate. I think Claire Foy was brilliant. I sent her an email congratulating her. It was fantastic."

Meanwhile, Mirren previously admitted she "cried" when she saw the costumes she had to wear to play the Queen.

She said: "The clothes are very important. I remember when I had my first costume fitting for The Queen, and they laid all of these sensible shoes out, kilts, barbour jackets, head scarves, and these sort of dresses ... I cried. I thought, I can't play anyone who'd wear these clothes. I just can't do it.

"The Queen is completely uninterested in clothes. She's not at all vain ... It's like a policeman wearing a uniform. She's wearing her uniform. She doesn't care what she looks like in it as long as it's the right thing for the right moment. Forget what they look like. It's what they feel like. And they're made out of unbelievably beautiful fabrics and then lined with incredibly expensive silk, so when you put them on, they feel incredible."

Celtic complete deal to sign Leo Mazis .
Celtic have wasted no time bringing players into the club during the January transfer window as they have completed the signing of Leo Mazis on a three-and-a-half-year contract this week. Mazis first joined the club on a trial basis back in November and has performed well enough behind the scenes to prompt the club to hand him a permanent contract, joining from Belconnen United, who play in Canberra’s National Premier League. The 17-year-old winger is expected to join up with the Celtic development squad where he will be monitored ahead of a potential future push into the first-team, following in the footsteps of Kieran Tierney and Liam Henderson in recent seasons. Mazis becomes the second confirmed transfer of the window after the Bhoys signed defender Marvin Compper from Red Bull Leipzig for a reported £1m, while a £300,000 deal for Lewis Morgan is expected to be concluded soon, with the youngster returning to St. Mirren on loan for the rest of the season.
