Kristen Stewart’s portrayal of Princess Diana in the film Spencer, which recently aired at the Venice Film Festival, astounded everyone.

The Twilight actress revealed what it’s like to play such a renowned figure, saying Diana’s life is one of the most heartbreaking stories she’s ever seen.

In an interview with a magazine, Stewart said, “It’s one of the saddest stories to exist ever, and I don’t want to just play Diana, I want to know her implicitly. I haven’t been this excited about playing a part, by the way, in so long.”

In the months leading up to filming, the actress said she listened to recordings of the late princess’ voice as she went to sleep every night to prepare for such a difficult part.

“The accent is terrifying as heck because everyone recognises that voice, and it’s so distinct and unique,” Stewart said at the time. “I’m working on it right now, and I’ve already enlisted the help of a dialect coach.”

She previously stated on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she had to do a lot of homework in order to fit into the role.

“I was really young, didn’t know what was going on, but now, it’s hard not to feel protective over her,” the Happiest Season actress explained. “She was so young. … Everyone’s perspective is different, and there’s no way to get everything right. Because what is the fact in relation to personal experience?”

“My movie takes place over three days and it’s this really poetic, internal imagining of what that might have felt like rather than giving new information,” the Charlie’s Angel star explained. “So, we kind of don’t have a mark to hit. We just also love her.”
