London, December 3 (ANI): Dame Helen Mirren has admitted she felt "very unsure" about reprising her Oscar-winning role as The Queen in an upcoming West End play.

"I don't like going back to things," the 67-year-old said. "I like to go forward."

But she was won over, she went on, by the "extraordinary team of artists who are putting the play together".

The actress was speaking at the European Film Awards in Malta, where she received an honorary award.

Dame Helen's comments came as she spoke to reporters after accepting an award for European Achievement in World Cinema, the BBC reported.

Her screen portrayal of Elizabeth II in 2006 also won her a slew of prizes, among them a best actress prize at the European Film Awards. (ANI)
