If you see someone walking around Tel Aviv who looks like royalty, it might be Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren. The 63-year-old actress, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Britain's Queen Elizabeth in the 2006 film The Queen, is currently in Israel filming scenes for her upcoming film, The Debt. The Debt is a remake of the 2007 Israeli film Hahov, about three Israeli Mossad agents tracking down a Nazi war criminal over 30 years. The original film was directed by Assaf Bernstein and starred Gila Almagor. The Debt is directed by John Madden.
