The actress said of the role: ‘Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal point in her life.
‘It is a physical assertion of the sum of her parts, which starts with her given name; Spencer. It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her.’
The press release for Spencer reads: ‘December, 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate.
‘There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.’
The drama also stars Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris.
