Helen Tasker is a character appears in movie True Lies (1994) as Harry Tasker's wife . Helen Tasker is portrayed by Jamie Lee Curtis. 

Helen and their daughter, Dana, believe Harry is a computer salesman with Tektel Systems (the cover company for Omega Sector) doing a lot of "corporate" travel. She becomes bored in her suburban housewife life.

Harry overhears her talking over the phone to a man named Simon. He uses his connections in Omega Sector to learn that Simon is a used car salesman, pretending to be a secret agent to seduce women, including Helen. Harry and other Omega agents, don masks and kidnap Helen while she is at Simon's trailer while frightening Simon to keep him away from her. Harry, using a voice masking device, interrogates Helen and learns she sought adventure with Harry gone all the time. Harry arranges for Helen to participate in a staged mission, where she is to seduce an mysterious arms dealer in a hotel room (in reality, it's Harry hiding in the shadows with a pre-recorded voice) and plant a tracking bug on him. Helen arrives in a frilly dress before tearing it down to a much more revealing. Harry orders her to strip down to her lingerie and dance suggestively. However, when he tries to kiss Helen, she hits him with a phone and tries to run out when Aziz' men burst in and kidnap both of them, and take them to an island in the Florida Keys.

Aziz reveals he possesses tactical nuclear warheads hidden inside antique statues shipped by Juno and plans to detonate one to demonstrate his power to the United States, before ordering his men to torture the two. Harry, under a truth serum, reveals his double life to Helen. He then explains exactly how he will break free and does so before rescuing Helen, who discards her high heels and goes barefoot to keep up. They secretly watch as Aziz prepares to take one of the warheads into downtown Miami and sets another to go off on the island within the hour. Harry leaves Helen in a safe place as he starts to attack Aziz' men, but Helen is captured by Aziz and Juno and taken with the convoy on the Overseas Highway. Harry is rescued by Gibson and other agents in helicopters following the tracking bug that Helen was to set, and they pursue the convoy along the Seven Mile Bridge, with two U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier jets firing and destroying part of the bridge to stop the convoy. Helen knocks Juno‘a gun away and begins to fight her. She is nearly strangled but ultimately kicks Juno away and knocks her unconscious with an alcohol bottle. Harry manages to rescue Helen from Juno's limo before it falls over the destroyed section. The jets make it back to the mainland in time before the first bomb goes off, while Harry and Helen passionately kiss.

They quickly learn that Aziz and his men have taken control of a downtown Miami skyscraper and have kidnapped Dana, threatening to detonate the second bomb in downtown Miami. Harry takes one of the Harriers to reach the skyscraper quickly, leaving Helen standing on the road barefoot and worried. Harry, Helen, and Dana are safely reunited and taken away in secret to avoid being publicly recognised.

A year later, the Tasker's family integrity has been restored, and it is revealed that Helen now also works for Omega Sector. Harry and Helen are called to embark on a new mission together, where they encounter "Simon" again, who is a waiter serving champagne and telling a female attendee at the event that he is actually a secret agent on a mission. Using her new skills, Helen intimidates Simon into leaving, just before a tango begins with Harry and Helen taking their places to complete their mission. ====
