American actor Kristen Stewart Premiere Drama Spencer At the London Film Festival on Thursday, she said she was excited to bring the role of the late Princess Diana to a British audience.
The 31-year-old was praised for her performance in the film. Diana arranged for three days as she reluctantly went to Sandringham House for a Christmas meeting with the British royal family after her marriage to Prince Charles broke down.
Directed by Chilean filmmaker Pablo Lauren, Spencer premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month, with some critics praising Stewart’s world-renowned The Twilight Saga films for Best Actress Oscar nomination.
“I’m glad to bring it home … we came with so much love. Even though everyone hated it, it’s OK, because we really put everything we have,” Stewart told Reuters on the red carpet.
“And we love her so much and want to understand her … I hope everyone loves it as much as we love her.”
Spencer portrayed Diana as being largely isolated from members of the royal family and free from the oppression of traditional rules. It also shows her close relationship with her sons, Princess William and Harry.
“I was impressed by Pablo’s courageous faith … He literally said, ‘I think you need to do this movie with me,'” said Stewart, who is also known to Seberg, Clouds of Sils Maria and personal shopper.
“I could not bear the temptations. She was a real draw. I was attracted to her.”
The London Film Festival, which runs until October 17, is back on the red carpet premiere this year after a major virtual event last year due to the Kovid-19 pandemic last year.
