Sir Kenneth Branagh has revealed his Cinderella is not just a damsel waiting for her prince.
The British filmmaker’s next directing project is a Disney remake of the classic fairytale with an all-star cast headed by Downton Abbey’s Lily James as Cinderella.
Branagh revealed: “It’s an evolving adaptation that’s based on being much moved by the ancient power of that myth. Everybody identifies with that underdog story, we are her and we want her to succeed against all odds and that goodness can win out. And that doesn’t suggest that life is only worth living if a rich man comes along.”
Added to the gallery a couple of new Downton Abbey season 4 promotional images together with some behind the scenes (with big thanks to Renee for some of them!) enjoy :)
Lily James has revealed she has found comfort in having an on-screen father in new film Cinderella.
The Downton Abbey actress is starring as the princess in Walt Disney’s reimagining of the fairytale directed by Kenneth Branagh. The 24-year-old star was very close to her father, actor and musician James Thomson, until his death from cancer five-and-a-half years ago.
Lily told Tatler studying at the Guildhall of Music and Drama when her father died, “was a lifeline for me, it saved me. I found drama school very nurturing – I just clung on”.
When she was cast in Cinderella, one of the first things she asked Branagh was who would play her father.
She said: “It’s weird, the idea of someone else playing my dad, but weirdly nice. And I was really excited when I found out it was going to be Ben Chaplin.”
The blonde beauty admitted it’s a dream come true to play a fairytale princess.
She said: “You know that scene in Runaway Bride when Julia Roberts puts on the amazing wedding dress and looks at herself in the mirror and goes ‘swish, swish’? I loved that moment so much when I was a little girl. And that’s how it was for me at the Cinderella screen test. I was in full costume, and when I saw myself I just couldn’t help holding the skirts of my ballgown and saying, ‘Swish, swish’.”
