ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Dame Helen Mirren is urging Americans to reflect on the surprise that was Britain's decision to leave the EU - and vote on November 8. The video, entitled 'No Regrets,' has been funded by Humanity for Hillary. Talking about making the film, Mirren said: "Never could I have imagined Britain voting to leave the EU, but it happened. And the global shockwaves, confusion and regret felt in the wake of Brexit should serve as a warning to the United States, which I love and consider a second home. Imagine how you'll feel if you do not vote November 8. The unthinkable really can happen, and I strongly believe that love does trump hate. Vote." The referendum vote (Brexit) held on June 23 was expected to result in the United Kingdom remaining in the EU, but leave unexpectedly won by 52% to 48%. The referendum turnout was 71.8%, with more than 30 million people voting. The world was stunned by the vote - and led to many expressing remorse for note voting OR voting to leave, including a petition signed by over 100,000 people. Humanity for Hillary is a social media and cultural campaign that has reached an audience of more than 100 million people online. Their focus has been artist led videos and memes that have been viewed over 30 million times.
