Kristen Stewart on playing Princess Diana

27/11/2020

Kristen Stewart says she feels “protective” of Diana, Princess of Wales, as she prepares to play the late royal in a biopic about her life.

Interest in the princess has been reignited over the past few weeks with Netflix’s fourth season of The Crown, which explores the tumultuous relationship between Diana and Prince Charles. The show has been criticised by senior royals who were angered by its “cruel and unfair” depiction of the events that led to the breakdown of the Wales’ marriage.

Stewart is the latest actress to play her in a new film called Spencer.

“It’s hard not to feel protective over her,” said Stewart on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “She was so young… everyone’s perspective is different, and there’s no way to get everything right… what is fact in relation to personal experience.”

Spencer, which begins filming in 2021, takes place over the course of three days in which Diana decides to separate from her husband. “It’s this really poetic, internal imagining of what that might have felt like, rather than giving new information,” said Stewart.

The actress also shed some insight into how she planned on recreate her famous hairstyle. “She has very architectural hair,” Stewart explained, “so we’re going to build it… I don’t think I can do it solely with my own hair.”
