The American actress will play the Welsh princess in a film more akin to fiction than a documentary.
The announcement of Kristen Stewart in Lady Di’s footsteps caused a stir. In the movie Spencer, in reference to the maiden name of Diana before her marriage to Charles, the British actress will play the role of the late princess. In the show Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress returned to her link with Lady Di and the plot of the film.
“I didn’t grow up with her, I was very young when she passed awaySays Kristen Stewart. The actress was only 7 years old when the princess died from a car accident. “I remember the flowers, I had never seen so many in one place. I was very young, I didn’t know what was going on, but now it’s hard not to be protective of her. She was so young and charismatic.“
Spencer will return then on a weekend which took place during the Christmas celebrations of 1990. In the royal residence of Sandringham, Lady Di takes the firm decision to divorce the prince and thus the British Crown. “The film takes place over three days, and it’s an internal and truly poetic imagination of what it might have looked like, rather than a willingness to give new information“.
The viewer should therefore expect more from a work of fiction. The feature film will begin shooting in January 2021 and will be directed by Pablo Larrain, a biopics specialist. In 2016, he took care of Jackie Kennedy with the film Jackie as well as Neruda, on the life of Pablo Neruda.
