Kristen Stewart is bluffing internet users
In June 2020, Spencer, a new biopic, was announced with Kristen Stewart in the title role. The choice of the American actress, mainly known for her role in the Twilight saga surprised many Internet users but the first photo published by the production on January 27 must have reassured more than one. Kristen Stewart is indeed unrecognizable with the blonde bob cut of Lady Diana, it remains to be seen how the actress will embody the one who remains an icon for many people. The actress is aware that the pressure on her shoulders will be very important, she confided that she had trained with a coach to adopt Lady Diana’s accent, which is very different from hers.
Lady Diana facing a tough decision
Like the film Diana, this new biopic will not tell the entire life of the princess but will focus on a specific period. Here, this period will be reduced to a weekend in December 1991, during which Lady Diana made a decision that would change her life. While celebrating Christmas during a family vacation in Sandringham, Lady Diana made the choice to part ways with Prince Charles, with whom she had not gotten along for months. The separation will take effect the following year but they will not be officially divorced until four years later, one year before Lady Di’s death. Kristen Stewart will therefore be responsible for portraying a tortured Diana Spencer, who wonders about the outcome she wants to give to her life. The film is expected in 2022, for the 25th anniversary of Lady Diana’s death.
