Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in Spencer – It was only last year back in June 2020 that the globally reliable and leading digital publication reported about Kristen playing lead character of Princess Diana in film and in an interview back then with the same globally reliable and leading digital publication, director Pablo Larrain had said, “Kristen can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile and ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need. The way she responded to the script and how she is approaching the character, it’s very beautiful to see. I think she’s going to do something stunning and intriguing at the same time… As a filmmaker, when you have someone who can hold such a weight, dramatic and narrative weight just with her eyes, then you have the strong lead who can deliver what we are looking for”.
First main pic from sets revealed Kristen’s total transformation into late Princess Diana – For audiences and fans that found Kristen’s casting as Diana to be really puzzling which shocked their wits, two main stills released from the film’s production company as well as the paparazzi pics from set showcased and described actress’s unbelievable transformation into Diana.
In January 2021 end, the paps had deftly snapped Kristen at the Friedrichshof Palace in Germany, which will stand in for Sandringham Palace in the movie. Stewart wore a cream cowl-neck sweater similar to one worn by Diana during a 1983 photo shoot at Kensington Palace and also many more photos were released from set in between February and March 2021.
On 25th March, another new pic of Kristen as Diana had been revealed by a leading digital portal officially announcing that the shooting had moved to UK.
Similarly a few days later on the 29th March, the shutterbugs finally published photos of Kristen Stewart on the sets in a red varsity jacket and jeans, which is totally bearing a striking resemblance and is a lot similar to an outfit Diana was photographed wearing on a school run with Prince Harry in 1992.
Film details and plot – Most importantly, this particular film takes place over a three-day period in which the late Princess Diana finally takes the reigns of her life in her hands and then ends up deciding that she actually “wants to be the woman she was before she met Charles” and also her death is not going to be shown in the movie but yes her last Christmas as a married royal princess to Prince Charles at the Sandringham estate at Norfolk in 1991 in which she came to the conclusion of having to divorce the Prince is definitely going to be seen in the film.
In an interview back in last year June 2020 with the globally reliable and leading digital publication, director Pablo Larrain had also shared, “I’ve always been intrigued and fascinated by the royal family and how things are in that culture, which we don’t have where I come from. Diana is such a powerful icon, where millions and millions of people, not just women, but many people around the world felt empathy toward her in her life. We decided to get into a story about identity, and around how a woman decides somehow, not to be the queen. She’s a woman who, in the journey of the movie, decides and realizes that she wants to be the woman she was before she met Charles”.
Also sharing about Diana’s motherhood being a pivotal part of story, Pablo Larrain had added, “The key is how she discovers during the process of the movie that what she really needs to do is be who she wants to be. And by that, it doesn’t mean she needs to be next to anyone, to be part of anything, but herself and her own children. Diana was many things, but chief among them, she was a great mother. This is the story of a woman who understands the most important thing for a woman in her life is her own children”.
Few months back on 26th March 2021,a leading digital portal officially announced that 35 years old Poldark actor Jack Farthing would be essaying the character of Prince Charles.
Supporting cast in Spencer – This film is surely going to be an epic and special more like a big hit as it has an aptly selected ensemble starcast of Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins, and Sean Harris who all have been cast in undisclosed roles as their details have been kept under wraps for now.
German model and actress Olga Hellsing will play Sarah Ferguson, the former Duchess of York, whilst Thomas Douglas will play Diana’s father, Earl John Spencer.
The entire Behind The Scenes team has worked on some hit and cult shows – Apart from Pablo Larrain, the Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has written the script while Portrait of a Lady on Fire cinematographer Claire Mathon took on director of photography (DOP) duties. Jacqueline Durran, Oscar winner for Little Women is officially the costume designer for the film whilst Wakana Yoshihara is head of makeup and hair design followed by Guy Hendrix Dyas as production designer and Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood who will compose an original score.
Kristen found acing Diana’s accent intimidating as hell – In an earlier interview within last year October 2020 speaking on this, Kristen had said, “The accent is intimidating as all hell because people know that voice, and it’s so, so distinct and particular. I’m working on it now and already have my dialect coach. 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. 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”.
