On being dedicated to portray the role as accurately as possible: [Goes to Kensington Palace] “Whenever I can,” and obsessively scours biographies and the Queen’s own diaries for clues to her personality. [Queen Victoria’s own drawings are her favorite source of inspiration] “You really feel that you are seeing the world through her eyes. Everything else has been edited – even her diaries, which were cut by her daughter.”

On being 5’2” and how that helped her performance [although that’s still three inches taller than Victoria was]:  “I can empathize with that feeling of it being harder to project power. For the first series, I was put into cream dresses and bonnets – and I hated wearing a bonnet! I felt really young and girlie. Then I realized that was exactly how Victoria must have felt, surrounded by men in black suits, and having to lead.”
