Education

About me

Three years training at the Drama Centre. Winner of The Alan Bates award for most outstanding new comer. Last year nominated for best actress in the off west end award for Breakfast With Emma, last summer I spent 5 months at the Garrick In Pygmalion. Currently in The Love OF The Nightingale and am playing a guest lead in Doctors on Feb 22nd, 1.45pm BBC1 and iplayer.

Additional Information

"It is Millar's performance, however, which rises from the good to the sublime. She grabs your attention and while she is on stage you cannot look away. As her character wastes away she makes you believe it -- six months of emaciation in 90 minutes -- and her bold, in your face depiction of a destructive young woman seeking power over her own life puts me in mind of the stellar performance of Katrin Cartlidge in Mike Leigh's Career Girls.
But she is possessed of an intensity far greater than Cartlidge ever achieved in her short career. I'm made to think of a young Jodi Foster, both by the virtuosity of her performance and her visage."
FORTUNES PAWN

"But equally it is a credit to Weldon's balanced conception, and Helen Millar's performance, that this is not an Emma we can necessarily identify with. Millar manages all the raging, seducing, rationalising and downright madness with ease, alternatively hard-faced and positively deliquescing with rapture. She even manages to look alluring in a frock so frumpy that surely fashionista Emma would have crossed the street to avoid it." Gina Allum, The New Statesman


"Millar is captivating as a girl who uses anorexia to exact control over her otherwise chaotic life."
TIME OUT

"He (Macbeth) is well supported by the Lady Macbeth of Helen Millar. She's as much a plotting villain as him and such is her playing that she attracts deservedly rapt attention."
Macbeth - The Stage, James Green

"Behind every great man is a woman and Helen Millar's portrayal of Lady Macbeth as a calculated stateswoman, driven insane by paranoia and guilt, is chilling and disturbing."
Macbeth - News Shopper, Matthew Jenkin

"A special mention to Helen Millar for her chilling portrayal of Lady Macbeth."
Macbeth -Afridiziak Theatre News, Sophia A Jackson

"Landing somewhere between Eva Peron and Eva Braun, Helen Millar also gives a good performance as a calm and determined Lady Macbeth. She is neither cold nor terrifying but measured and practical throughout, a portrayal that ensures that her blood curdling scream in the sleepwalking scene is even more chilling when it arrives."
Macbeth -Remote Goat,James Fritz

"Helen Millar sparkles as Amina, a figure of lust who isn't as innocent as she might seem. Millar embodies the male fantasy world with a deftness of touch that is delightful to watch."
REMOTE GOAT

"The acting is excellent: Helen Millar's stroppy Andrea contrasts perfectly with Elizabeth Bichard's naive and needy Lucy, while Camilla Simson's Meg is a convincing mix of aggression and failure."
THE STAGE

THE BRINK review by Daniel O'Brien, FILM INTERNATIONAL

"Of the cast, Helen Millar stands out as Natasha, an ex-model with a troubled family background and severe psychological problems. While Millar is restricted by the nature of her role, she gives a persuasive portrayal of a damaged young woman who longs for friendship and attention yet fears intimacy on any level."

The Times, Robert Dawson Scott:
"Ellie Dunn, the young woman who symbolises the modernity Shaw prefers (played with great composure by Helen Millar, always sensible but never a prig),"
The Scotsman, Joyce McMIllan:
"Helen Miller is an icily brilliant Ellie, a fine specimen of youthful beauty frozen by disappointment in love into a hard-edged force of nature, bent on self-preservation."

The Stage, Peter Cargill:
"And equally impressive was Helen Millar as Ellie, evolving from heart-broken naivete to a woman on a mission."

Perthshire Advertiser, Alison Anderson:
"Ellie Dunn is well captured by Helen Millar as she peels off the layers of this complex character"
