I suffered from TMJ disorders to the point that I couldn’t even speak. I couldn’t open my mouth for two weeks before filming began. I was feeling so nervous that I didn’t think I could do it.
Larraín helped me relax and trust the process. I tried to study all the complexities in Princess Diana’s life. I read and listened to all his interviews.
