Speaking about how she came into the franchise, Mirren told Buzzfeed in 2017: “My role in F and F 8 came about because I begged for it. I almost went down on my knees. Not quite. But I went down on my metaphorical knees to Vin [Diesel] and to everyone.

“I always ... I just wanted to be in one of those movies,” she continued. “So word went out that I wanted to be in it and they very kindly gave me a role in it. So I was very excited.”

Fast & Furious 9 arrives in theatres in the US on 25 June and in the UK on 8 July.
