Kristen Stewart will soon be seen as Princess Diana in the new movie Spencer about Diana Spencer. For that film, the first photo of Kristen as Princess Diana has now been released and the resemblance to it is striking.
Who to The Crown on Netflix, Princess of course knows Diana in the guise of Emma Corrin. But also Twilightactress Kristen Stewart will soon be seen as the UK’s most popular princess. She will play the iconic role in the movie Spencer, directed by Pablo Larraín.
The film Spencer will zoom in on three important days in the life of Princess Diana. Specifically about the Christmas season: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day in the early 1990s. On those three days Diana realizes that her marriage to Prince Charles is falling apart and realizes that this is not the life she wanted.
The film will therefore not discuss the death of Princess Diana and the many conspiracy theories that arise around it. Rather, it will provide a glimpse into the princess’s mindset and will delve deeper into her love for her two sons and the marriage between Diana and Charles. Director Pablo Larraín describes it this way: “We decided to tell a story about identity, about how a woman decides she doesn’t want to be a queen. She is a woman who decides in the film that she wants to be the woman she was before she met Charles. ”
It is not the first time that director Pablo Larraín has ventured into a biopic. For example, he made the film in 2016 Jackie, about First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, better known as Jackie O. In that film, Nathalie Portman played the iconic First Lady.
The lead role in Spencer is for Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Snow White and the Huntsman). In addition, Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Sean Harris (Mission Impossible) and Timothy Spall (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd) appear in the film. It is not yet known what roles they play.
Meanwhile, the first photo of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana has appeared. Although chubby tongues at first saw no resemblance in the princess and the actress, it is now very clearly present.
