Director Kenneth Branagh Testing New Actresses For Lead ‘Cinderella’ Role

Director Kenneth Branagh Testing New Actresses For Lead 'Cinderella' Role 2

680x478

After getting a no from Harry Potter‘s Emma Watson for Cinderella, Disney and director Kenneth Branagh are testing three young actresses this week in London. One of them will likely walk away with the title role. I’m hearing that WME-repped Bella Heathcoate, UTA-repped Lily James and CAA-repped Margot Robbieare testing.

Heathcoate most recently was seen in Dark Shadows and Not Fade Away, while James was in Downton Abbey and Wrath Of The Titans and Robbie was in Pan Am and The Wolf Of Wall Street. Cinderella has CateBlanchett attached.

Once Branagh lands Cinderella he’ll move on to the handsome prince. That list is just being compiled, but I’m told that WME-repped Richard Madden is on it. He plays aspiring king Robb Stark in HBO’s Game Of Thrones.
