Mumbai, Nov 24 (IANS) Actress Emily Browning, who plays the role of actor Tom Hardy’s wife Frances Shea in crime thriller film “Legend”, says she loved her character as what she does in the film is something that not many people can do in real life.
Directed by Brian Helgeland, “Legend” captures the rise and fall of the Kray twins Ronald ‘Ronnie’ Kray and Reginald ‘Reggie’ Kray (played by Hardy); the relationship that bound them together, and charts their gruesome career to their downfall and imprisonment for life in 1961.
Browning is shown as an ill-fated wife in the film.
Talking about her character, she said in a statement: “It was really nice for me to see those two sides. That’s what I loved about the character… She was genuinely in love with this man and she was this fragile, sweet girl with a lot of her own issues, but she was also ballsy enough to stand up to someone that not many people would have stood up to.”
“Legend” will be released in India on December 4 by PVR Pictures.
