Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell has joined the cast of Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming Cinderella. Atwell herself broke the news in the pages of Harper’s Bazaar as part of an in-depth diary covering her new play, The Pride.
“I am about to start filming Kenneth Branagh’s new movie, Cinderella,” Atwell writes, “playing Cinderella’s biological mother at the beginning of the story, the embodiment of goodness and maternal love.”
Atwell, who next reprises her role as Peggy Carter in the Marvel Studios short film “Agent Carter,” joins Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera and Stellan Skarsgard for the March 13, 2015 release, now filming at Pinewood Studios in England.
