First Look: Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher


The first image of Meryl Streep as former British PM Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady has been released.

Said Streep: "The prospect of exploring the swathe cut through history by this remarkable woman is a daunting and exciting challenge. I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervour and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses – I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own!"

The film, which began shooting on January 31, is being directed by British theatre director Phyllida Lloyd and also stars Jim Broadbent.
