    With their new film in cinemas now, Dame Helen Mirren has spoken highly of co-star Russell Brand.


    The Tempest sees Mirren playing Prospera, a character originally written as a male called Prospero, and Brand portraying jester Trinculo.


    Mirren described the British comedian as: "Very hardworking... he's dedicated, he's got incredible energy and he's very kind and generous."


    The pair are teaming up again for Arthur, which is out next month and is a remake of the 1981 film starring Dudley Moore.


    The Tempest is directed by Julie Taymor who famously brought Disney's The Lion King to Broadway and London's West End.
