Actress Kristen Stewart recently got candid about her experience of playing the role of Princess Diana in her upcoming film “Spencer”. The Twilight star shared that getting to know Princess Diana has been a really cool experience for her.

Stewart who played the role of the late Princess of Wales in Pablo Larraín’s upcoming directorial Spencer admitted that Diana “means a lot to her” but that her story is “all relatively new because” Kristen is “from LA” and “didn’t grow up in England.”

The 31-year-old actor said that before working on Spencer, Diana’s story wasn’t “something that was at the forefront of” Stewart’s mind because the actress “lived so far away from it all.” However, “Now, I can’t stop thinking about her. I often wonder what she’d think about what’s going on in the world right now,” Kristen confessed before revealing, “To be honest, I’ve now consumed pretty much all there is to consume in terms of videos and interviews. I’ve watched everything that you could hear or see. I even go to sleep with it on.”

The plot of ‘Spencer’ centers on Diana’s Christmas holidays (a three-day weekend) with the royal family at their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England, in the early 90s. It was around this time that Diana made the monumental decision to divorce Prince Charles and leave the royal family. Spencer’s script has been penned by Steven Knight.
