S-a născut ca Hellen Mironoff în Londra. Tatăl ei este rus, iar mama englezoaică. Bunicul din partea tatălui, Pyotr Vassilievich Mironov, a fost un diplomat și colonel rus foarte respectat, care a avut ca misiune negocierea unor afaceri de război în Londra. Tocmai de aceea, în timpul Revoluției din Rusia, s-a mutat cu toată familia în Marea Britanie. Tatăl său și-a schimbat numele în Mirren în 1950. A fost violonist pentru multă vreme la Filarmonica din Londra și înainte de a se alătura Ministerului Transporturilor a fost și taximetrist.

Helen Mirren a urmat cursurile Școlii Catolice de fete St. Bernard, unde și-a început ;i cariera de actriță. A jucat în mai multe producții de teatru în cadrul școlii, pentru care a fost, încă de pe atunci, foarte apreciată. La vârsta de 18 ani a dat o audiție pentru Teatrul Național pentru tineret și a fost acceptată.

Edited by Chris Worwood, with whom she worked on the Award-winning HBO series Elizabeth, the book covers every aspect of her life from her aristocratic Russian heritage to her days with Peter Hall's RSC company to her Academy Award for The Queen.
