Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in The Queen (2006)

Sylvia Sims played the Queen Mother (Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) in Stephen Frears’ The Queen.

Sims long and successful career began in the 1950s and though she has played politicians like Margaret Thatcher, this was her first role as a monarch on film.

I think she did a great job with the role.  She conveyed a sense of fun while still managing to be quite conservative.
