Michelle Yeoh always wanted to play Aung San Suu Kyi

London , Fri, 30 Dec 2011 ANI

London, Dec 30 (ANI): Michelle Yeoh has revealed that she was always keen on playing the role of Burmese activist Aung San Suu Kyi.

 

But it was only by chance that the Malaysian-born actress found a writer was already developing such a project.

 

"It was four years ago when I read an article in a newspaper that said there was a filmmaker wanting to do a movie about Suu Kyi," the Mirror quoted 48-year-old former Bond girl as saying.

 

"I got my manager from Los Angeles to find out who was working on it. I guess I was really lucky as my manager found out they were looking at me for the role."

 

"When I saw the script I was really taken. Do you really want to go into the cinema for two hours of politics? No. You want to know the human drama."

 

The finished film, The Lady, has been released and is based on the story of Suu Kyi's marriage to the academic Michael Aris, played by David Thewlis. (ANI)
