On Tuesday night (March 3), Emily Blunt was spotted at the UK premiere of her new movie “The Young Victoria” in Odeon Leicester Square, London.

“The Young Victoria” will focus on the first, often turbulent, years of the monarch’s rule. She became queen at 18, and her legendary romance and marriage to Prince Albert. Devastated by her husband’s death in 1861, she wore black for the rest of her life and remained largely secluded. Broadbent will play King William, Victoria’s uncle, while Richardson has been cast as the Duchess of Kent, Victoria’s mother. They join Emily Blunt as Victoria and Rupert Friend as her husband, Prince Albert.

Meanwhile, Emily recently told press about how badly she wanted the role, saying:

“It’s rare that I make a plea for a part and I did really want this one. It’s probably the only part I’ve ever really gone down on my hand and knees for. That sounded really dodgy! I meant to say knees.”

“I think it’s always a bit of a fight for all those great parts that you want, I mean we often have to claw our way into the room, and the parts that are really good are always difficult to get.”
