Larraín explains: “We all grew up understanding what a fairytale is, however Diana Spencer modified the paradigm, and the idealised icons that popular culture creates, perpetually. This is the story of a Princess who determined to not turn out to be a queen, however selected to construct her id by herself. It’s an upside-down fairytale.”
Creating such a character-driven film, it was important to solid “the right Diana”. For Larraín, he discovered his excellent solid match in Kristen Stewart.
“Kristen Stewart is without doubt one of the nice actors round at this time. She is the place she is now as a result of she has one thing essential in film, which is thriller. Kristen may be many issues; she may be very mysterious, very fragile and in the end very robust as effectively, which is what we would have liked.”
For Stewart, she felt like she received to know Diana by her analysis and located some similarities to her life that she might relate too.
“I’ve felt extraordinarily uncontrolled in sure intervals of my life, and that may be a defining issue of her life. She should have been conscious that individuals had been at all times gazing her, and I’ve tasted that, I do know what that seems like,” Stewart explains.
“As quickly as I received to know her and construct a relationship along with her by my analysis, I couldn’t consider how straightforward it was to like her.”
