All the Cinderellas of history
Camila Cabello she takes the baton from a very long series of actresses who before her have played Cinderella in the live action versions of the fairy tale (the Disney animated film of 1950 remains the most famous). The list is mileage, since the time of the silent. Let us remember, between faithful adaptations and various reinterpretations, at least Julie Andrews (1957 musical), Brandy Norwood (remake of the film with Andrews), Drew Barrymore (La leggenda di un amore – Cinderella, 1998), Hilary Duff (A Cinderella Story), Lily James (2015). And again: Vanessa Hessler in the Italian fiction of 2011 and Jessy Schram and Dania Ramírez who played the role in the series Once Upon a Time.
