Kristen Stewart is giving fans another glimpse into her Princess Diana transformation!
The 30-year-old actress was photographed on the set in Norfolk, England Spencer last week, and needless to say, the resemblance to the late royal is uncanny. Stewart was seen in a black and red varsity jacket, jeans and boots, similar to an outfit Princess Diana donned outside Wetherby School in London in April 1992.
Here’s Stewart on set in character …
… and Princess Diana with the original off-duty royal look:
Princess Diana, who was born Diana Spencer, was married to Prince Charles from 1981 to 1996. They had two children, Prince William and Prince Harry. He died in 1997 at age 36 after a car accident in Paris, France.
The Spencer The film, which is expected to be released in the fall of 2021, follows a tumultuous weekend in the life of the Princess of Wales, as she faces the end of her marriage to Prince Charles as she spends Christmas at the Sandringham estate in Queen Elizabeth in December 1991.
“Spencer it is an immersion into an emotional imagination of who Diana was at a fundamental turning point in her life. It is a physical statement of the sum of its parts, beginning with your first name; Spencer, “Stewart explained in a press release earlier this year.” It’s a heartbreaking effort for her to come to herself, as Diana struggles to hold on to what the name Spencer means to her. “
Stewart also talked about taking on the role of Princess Di while speaking to ET in November.
“It’s a really meditative project,” Stewart said. “There are so many perspectives on her and her story … it’s just not a black and white thing, and it’s a very elusive and emotional story for a lot of people.”
“This is kind of a poetic imagination, really internalized from maybe the three heaviest days before she does something as twisted as leaving the royal family,” he continued. “I’m reading everything I can and then I forget, because it’s kind of a really internalized story.”
