In the upcoming film SpencerStewart may be the first actress to play Diana who actually has firsthand experience of the kind of paparazzi mob that the Princess of Wales has regularly taken on.
Stewart responded to the question of how in the world do you do this right Jimmy Kimmel Live in November: “I mean, every perspective is different and there is no way to get anything right because what’s the fact in terms of personal experience? My film is about three days and it’s this really poetic inner vision.” how that might have felt instead of giving new information. So somehow we don’t have a brand to hit. We just love them too. “
director Pablo Larraín Called Stewart “one of today’s great actors,” Deadline said in June, “To do this well, you need something very important in the film that is a mystery. Kristen can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile and ultimately very strong what we need. The combination of these elements made me think of them. “
Similar to his 2016 film JackieWith Natalie Portman as first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Navigating the days after her husband was murdered Spencer will focus on a few pivotal days in Diana’s life in 1992, when she had to decide what to do as her marriage to Prince Charles continued its irreversible downward spiral.
Stewart was only seven years old when Diana died, but she remembers seeing on television the field of flowers that mourners left in front of Kensington Palace. “I’ve never seen so many in one place,” he said dusk Stern remembered Jimmy Kimmel. “I was really young, didn’t really know what was going on. But now it’s hard not to feel protected about her.”
Portman has been nominated for an Oscar (and every other award). If Stewart wins such awards, it will surely be a premiere for a Diana film, none of which has yet had the opportunity to keep the eerily powerful – and yes inimitably scandalous – story of the late king alive to this day.
