She said: “Emma is a fun, down to earth girl and an amazing actress. She’s really into it and we haven’t given her a look that she said no to. It helps when you’re friends because you can. say “I don’t think that’s okay with you” and she can tell me. “

She said HELLO! magazine: “Emma had a lot of action in this scene, so she couldn’t hold a mask over her face. I have this little box full of feathers, beads and jewelry from Hobbycraft, so I took it out. and I made a mask directly over Emma’s face on the day of the shoot, layered on individual feathers and jewelry.
“At the time, Emma was like, ‘What are we doing? But she let me do it. It was a last minute look, but it’s one of my favorites. Cruella is resourceful – and I had to be the same. “
