Blunt's Bombshell Performance
Emily Blunt is Queen Victoria. After witnessing her majesty in The Young Victoria, Blunt will quickly become one of your actress-to-watch. To celebrate the arrival of our next favorite actress, SheKnows is premiering an exclusive clip from the DVD and Blu-ray arrival of the Oscar-winning The Young Victoria.
The Young Victoria is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download. SheKnows is proud to present our exclusive clip entitled Girl featuring stars Rupert Friend and Paul Bettany discussing the evolution of a monarch.
Blunt stars as The Young Victoria as she takes to power as Queen of England. Victoria also found love that became the stuff of romantic historical legend. Friend portrays Prince Albert, than man who died young and sent Queen Victoria into a lifelong mourning period where she wore black every day.
The two are brilliant together and when SheKnows Entertainment reviewed the film for its theatrical release, we called it, "an absolute gift for the ages on many levels. On its own, the film is one of the year's best. Blunt's Victoria is a performance worthy of Oscar consideration. The supporting cast brings their A-game and compliments their film's star by truly lifting Blunt's Victoria to not only rule her true-story kingdom on screen, but allow her to find the thespian true talent to capture the almost-otherworldly icon of British history."
Like Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria also took control over an empire at an early age. Surrounded by those who sought to manipulate her innocence, Queen Victoria found her stoic strength from Prince Albert and left a legacy that few would argue is beyond historic.
The Young Victoria is produced by Duchess Sarah Ferguson and its attention to detail is impeccable because of it. The costumes are beyond beautiful and deserved the Academy Award given to Costume Designer Sandy Powell. Don't miss our exclusive interview with her!
In our exclusive clip, Victoria (Blunt) is introduced as a Girl. Watch as she becomes the Queen of England -- a powerful series of scenes only enhanced by Blunt reading the real words from Queen Victoria's diary.
