Camila Cabello is all set to woo you her fans with turning Cinderella. Yes, Camila Cabello is making her debut with Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming musical Cinderella. The film also features actors like Pierce Brosnan, Idina Menzel, Minnie Driver, Nicholas Galitzine and Billy Porter.
This new Cinderella is a modern-day take on the fairytale that the lil girls and young women will love. Camila Cabello aka Cinderella, refuses to be the girl in distress and is very ambitious. She wanted to focus on her passion for becoming a fashion designer.
This is the first time Camila is stepping into the world of cinema, here's what she said, “I have been working for a long time but playing such an iconic character was on another level. In this story, she understands what she wants from her life, and it’s not a prince. She wants a career, and she is being told that’s impossible. I love that she dares to be different."
Camila credits director Kay Cannon for guiding her during the filming, “I look up to Kay so much, she took hold of the reins and executed her vision with beautiful, womanly grace and a nurturing heart. I don’t know if I could have done this with anybody else. Besides being incredibly talented and funny, she’s so present. She makes everyone want to work hard because she sets that example.”
Camila called it the best experience of her life. “No way did I ever think I would be able to do this. Growing up, I didn’t really have access to the music or the movie industries. My family didn’t have a lot of money. Playing this role has only made me stronger. I think Cinderella made me a more kick-ass woman.”
Camila also talked about how she enjoyed the film that is an inspirational story of female empowerment to Latino girls and women. “I am so proud to be representing my community,” she says. “But I wouldn’t be here without the amazing work of the women who came before me like Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Lopez. Like our Cinderella, they are trailblazers not bound by societal and cultural boundaries, just following their own truth.”
