It’s exciting to see Kristen Stewart in a whole new different role.
Deadline reported that Kristen Stewart would be portraying Princess Diana in a biopic.
In her past roles, Kristen became an action hero, an amusement park helper, a Rockstar, a vampire, and a fairytale princess.
But the most exciting role she’ll be playing is the People’s Princess.
Kristen Stewart portraying Princess Diana in “Spencer”
The Twilight alum has already started preparing for the role before they start filming in January.
Since Kristen Stewart is American and Princess Diana is British, the 30-year-old has undergone intensive training to get the right voice and accent, something she’s already working on.
Speaking to InStyle, getting the mom-of-two’s role is both a dream come true and a living nightmare.
“The accent is intimidating as all hell because people know that voice, and it’s so, so distinct and particular.”
The Charlie’s Angels star added, “I’m working on it now and already have my dialect coach.”
Kristen Stewart is also diving deep into the story and not just the headlines that were written about Princess Diana.
The Los Angeles-born star said that she has been learning every little thing to know about Prince William and Prince Harry’s mom.
”In terms of research, I’ve gotten through two-and-a-half biographies, and I’m finishing all the material before I actually go make the movie.”
Kristen added, “It’s one of the saddest stories to exist ever, and I don’t want to just play Diana — I want to know her implicitly. I haven’t been this excited about playing a part, by the way, in so long.”
Spencer is going to be her most high-profile historical turn to date.
Casting ’emotionless’ Kristen
Pablo Larrain is directing the highly-anticipated movie.
He told Deadline why they chose Kristen Stewart over the others. Larrain said it’s because she is versatile.
“She can be very mysterious, and very fragile and ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need.”
Larrain is excited to see what Kristen can bring to the table, as he’s already expecting so much from the BAFTA award-winning actress.
Calling Kristen “a force of nature,” he believes “she’s going to do something stunning and intriguing at the same time.”
Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight wrote the film.
Spencer will follow Princess Diana’s days at Sandringham and coming to terms that her marriage to Prince Charles isn’t working.
The real-life former couple married in 1981 and became parents to two kids. However, it was obvious that they don’t love each other but were great parents to their sons.
