He subsequently pursued acting as a career, working predominantly on the stage, and later on Broadway, which led to Helmore's Hollywood career.

In British and American films, Helmore was mostly employed as a dapper, comedic actor, even if he is best known for his role as the villain Gavin Elster in Vertigo.
