Sally Fields is preparing for her role as Mary Todd Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's upcoming historical movie about the presidential pair. Fields is preparing for the role by visiting The Ford Theater with private tours. She wants to concentrate her character as the gentle and fragile person the First Lady truly was.
Fields has a gentle nature like Mrs. Lincoln, so she is studying the complexities of the former First Lady; but Ms. Fields did not want to concentrate on the death of Lincoln, or the morbidity of that horrific time in U.S. history. Like the true professional actress she is, she is preparing for her role in Washington on Tuesday for the Vital Voices gala.
The upcoming movie about Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd Lincoln will also star Daniel Day-Lewis in the leading role as Lincoln. Sally Fields is 64 years old, and she is working on studying the character of the intriguing Mrs. Lincoln. Fields is excited to play Mrs. Lincoln with all her complexities.
