DAME Helen Mirren is determined to perfect her role as a Jewish secret agent in forthcoming movie THE DEBT - the British actress has reportedly been taking Hebrew lessons.
The Queen star is currently in Israel filming scenes for the movie, in which she plays a Mossad spy searching for a Nazi war criminal.
And in order to do the character justice, Mirren has been learning all about Jewish history, according to British newspaper The Daily Express.
A source tells the publication, "Helen has spent the past six weeks reading the history of Israel, Mossad and the life and times of Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal and she's learning Hebrew, too. She's really taking this seriously and she's totally immersed into the way of life over there."
