Jeanna de Waal will star as Princess Diana in the forthcoming premiere. In the video above, the actor, whose Broadway credits include American Idiot and Kinky Boots, says, “I hope people who didn't know about or weren't aware of her journey leave the theatre with an idea of what she did for the world. She made everyone feel special.”
