This is interesting casting news…Kristen Stewart will take on the role of Princess Diana in the new movie Spencer. The drama, whose title refers to Lady Di’s surname before marriage, will take place over three days during the 1990s as Diana has second thoughts about her rocky marriage to Prince Charles during her final Christmas holidays with the royal family at the Sandringham estate.
Stewart is 30-years-old, which is six years younger than Diana was when she got divorced in 1996. The princess infamously died in a Paris car crash in 1997, and the film will not cover her tragic death. Princess Diana will be portrayed onscreen more than once in the coming years. Newcomer Emma Corrin will play Di in the upcoming Season 4 of Netflix’s The Crown, which will likely be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
