Dame Helen Mirren on new thriller Eye In The Sky

Dame Helen Mirren's latest film roles are poles apart but they're both portrayals of hard-as-nails women hunting down their enemies.

In "Trumbo", she is the anti-Semitic columnist Hedda Hopper, baiting Communists in 1950s Hollywood.

Andrew has been talking to Helen Mirren and she started by telling him about "Eye in the Sky".

In it, she is a British colonel tracking an Englishwoman who has joined Islamic militants.

Mirren calls in American air power to hit the terrorists with drone missiles - even though a young girl may be killed as a consequence.
