A while ago we posted the first official photo of Michelle Williams as the title character in the film My Week With Marilyn. Even though the actress isn’t a spitting image she has enough of a resemblance to pull off the part. Today we’ve moved on to the film’s supporting cast that includes Harry Potter alum Emma Watson. Check out our first look of her in character below…
Watson stars as Lucy, a wardrobe assistant working behind the scenes during the making of The Prince And The Showgirl in 1956.
In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark, just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe, who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller.
Nearly 40 years on, his diary account “The Prince, the Showgirl and Me” was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as “My Week with Marilyn” – this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
