She said:

“You could say she’s some sort of angel. She recognizes what people need, and she gives it to them, yet they discover something about themselves in the process.

"I don’t think she concerns herself with what she is. There’s nobody else like her—which she quite likes.”

She also admitted the the did not re-watch the classic film before filming began - as she didn't want it to put her off the role.

She added:

“I knew that if I watched Julie Andrews’s version, maybe I would take the edge off of what my instincts were telling me to do.

“Also, I didn’t want to be completely intimidated by the brilliance of her voice.”
