The interest in the royal family has never been greater but like death, like life, it is Diana, the princess of Wales, who holds the titles.
In July, the 60-year-old princess died in a 1997 car accident in Paris with her then-wife Dodi Fayed. He was only 36 years old.
While her sons, Princess William and Harry, continue her off-screen career, Diana has been a source of fascination in film and television, numerous musicals, documentaries and even a musical instrument that examines the princess’ inner life over the past four decades.
With Kirsten Stewart’s much-anticipated “Spencer” premiere at the Venice Film Festival on Friday night, Variety looks at eleven actors who have screened “People’s Princess”.
