If Patrick Stewart was a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race, his fans believe he would win a challenge of impersonating Helen Mirren.
The veteran actor appeared on stage in full drag on Monday night in Los Angeles while promoting the second season of his TV show Blunt Talk.
“Something is happening in Hollywood tonight,” Stewart wrote on Instagram before the promo event and posted a photo of himself getting glammed-up in the dressing room.
The Star Trek star stayed in character during the whole special screening and panel discussion rocking high heels, flowing platinum blonde hair, pink satin dress and rainbow-colored necklace.

Patrick’s stunning drag transformation was followed by burning reactions of his Twitter fans.
“You look like Helen Mirren’s older distinguished sister, and I have so many questions,” one wrote.
“Why is Dame Helen Mirren in your dressing room?” another asked.
@SirPatStew Glorious. Well done sir. Helen Mirren, amirite?

Patrick was not the only man that night who looked fabulous with fake eyelashes and full make-up. His co-star Adrian Scarborough also showed up in drag wearing a black velvet dress.
The pair star in “Blunt Talk,” a sitcom about a British newscaster moving to Los Angeles to host a talk show.
