    It’s “intimidating as all hell.”

    In one way, Kristen Stewart is perfectly equipped to play Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic — both the actor and the late icon have the same walled-off quality and aversion to the spotlight. As for differences, the most notable one is Kristen Stewart’s accent — but she says she’s working on that.

    Kristen recently talked how very, very nervous she is about getting the accent just right, and how she’s been making that a priority.

    “The accent is intimidating as all hell because people know that voice, and it’s so, so distinct and particular,” she recently told InStyle , adding, “I’m working on it now and already have my dialect coach.”

    She’s also been putting a lot of hours into familiarizing herself with the Princess of Wales’ upbringing and royal journey.

    “In terms of research, I’ve gotten through two and a half biographies, and I’m finishing all the material before I actually go make the movie,” she says. “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,” she added.

    Spencer starts filming in mid-January so Kristen still has plenty of time to get her accent just right.
