She said she identified well with Cinderella because her own father died while she was young, after battling cancer.

James said: “I had a scene where I was told my dad had died, so it was really hard, but I feel what’s important in the film is that ‘Cinderella’ gains strength from her loss and that was something I could… That was in me.”
