Elle Fanning Opens Up About Doing Comedy For The First Time In Hulu's 'The Great'

Elle Fanning is dishing on taking on a comedic role for the first time.

The 22-year-old actress stars as Catherine, The Great in the new Hulu series The Great, alongside Nicholas Hoult.

“This is the first comedy that I’ve done, so I had to learn not to feel embarrassed,” Elle told Forbes. “[I told myself], ‘Like alright, don’t be embarrassed. Be Brave. Be Catherine. Pull a face, go for it, try this wacky thing. Do things that you would never do on a regular film set.’”

“We pride ourselves on not being historically accurate,” she added about if the comedic timing changes the factual story of Catherine, The Great.

The entire first season of The Great is now streaming on Hulu!
