However, with her nerves comes excitement, the actress who plays Queen Elizabeth in upcoming film Mary Queen of Scots (out Jan. 17), tells WHO she does “love being on set” and has “fun doing it ... with people I love.”
You weren’t famous when you first worked with Leo and now you are a star working with him again on the Tarantino movie. How does that feel?
I’m so happy I’m working with him again and it is nice to return to those relationships, which has happened in a couple of instances, for example, I worked with Will Smith on Focus and then we got to work together again in Suicide Squad so we were already friends and we’d figured out how to work with each other.
Leo is so incredibly talented.
I saw that firsthand when we did Wolf.
I knew that watching Leo’s movies growing up, I knew that he was incredibly talented. So to watch him in this role is again just an absolute joy, and kind of like an acting class just watching him work.
