From the moment I envisioned her, Faye was tall, willowy, thin and very, very dignified.  Her elegance is  embedded into her genes – snooty, suedo-British accent and all. She is a feisty old woman for all that and has a biting sense of humor. Here is how I’ve always seen her: (Not that Helen is snooty!)

Yes, yes, Faye is Helen Mirren, only not quite as youthful as Helen always seems to be, with a small dash of Vanessa Redgrave thrown in.
