Dame Helen Mirren may be 75, but that isn't stopping the actor from getting behind the wheel of a £200,000 supercar for the upcoming Fast & Furious 9 movie.

Dame Helen Mirren previously lamented the phrase "anti-ageing" and now she's proved exactly why as she gets back to work on Fast & Furious 9.

The legendary actress will return to our screen next week in Fast & Furious 9—the highly-anticipated sequel to the franchise which she joined five years ago as Magdalene Shaw.

In new shots from the film, fans can see Helen dressed in zebra-print boots putting the pedal to the floor in a £200,000 supercar.

She says, "This is a match made in heaven for me" before giving co-star Vin Diesel a kiss on the cheek.

Helen confessed to having "so much fun" on set with Vin Diesel, although she said it was "not enough time" with the Fast & Furious family. 

"Whenever I do my little bit in Fast & Furious, it is always just the best fun," she said in an interview. 

Having been part of the franchise for five years now, Helen and the film's leading man Vin Diesel have forged a firm friendship.

In a behind-the-scenes shot, Vin called Queen actress Helen one of his "favourite people in the world" and said he was "so lucky" to get to work alongside her.

She admitted she feels the same, saying, "You know this man is a hero, he's a hero of mine and I love him so much."
