Rachel Weisz anxious about playing Jackie Kennedy
London: Actress Rachel Weisz is already feeling the huge responsibility of playing Jacqueline Kennedy in husband Darren Aronofsky`s new film - because she`s a Brit portraying an American icon.
The Mummy star will be play the role of Jackie and the film will portray Jackie’s life and how she coped with her husband President John F Kennedy’s assassination in 1963.
Despite being eager to start shooting for the film, she can’t help being a little anxious as to whether the American audience will accept a Brit actor playing the role of an American icon that everyone loved so much.
"It`s a recent project so the script is being developed and it`s a great script. I will have to start to do some reading,” The Daily Express quoted her as saying.
"Jackie Kennedy is American royalty and a 20th century icon, so it`s extremely scary, daunting, challenging and a huge responsibility. I don`t know exactly how I will play her yet because I haven`t started really working on it, but of course it`s a big responsibility," she added.
