Anne Hathaway has played a lot of different roles, but she's never been as nervous to play anyone as she was her character in One Day.
She was wracked with nerves before shooting started on her new romantic movie because she had to perfect a northern English accent. Hathaway fell in love with the role of Yorkshire-born Emma in the film, which is an adaptation of David Nicholls' 2009 novel.
Hathaway convinced director Lone Scherfig she was perfect for the part – but the American actress admits she initially doubted her ability to tackle the regional dialect.
She tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "I've never been so nervous about playing anyone as I was to play Emma.
"There were many reasons to say no to this part. One, because I didn't think I could pull it off. Two, I was very nervous about the Yorkshire accent."
