Winnie Mandela? She wore me out! Actress Naomie Harris spent one year 'exorcising' Nelson's ex wife after the role 'took its toll'
Playing Winnie Mandela took such a toll on Naomie Harris that she hasn’t acted for a year since completing the role.
The actress told me she’s spent the past 12 months ‘exorcising Winnie’ after portraying her in the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. The movie is about her husband Nelson Mandela’s fight against apartheid, and the 27 years he spent incarcerated.

What happened, in France, is that the agent I had got me so few auditions that I tried to get another agent and all the French agents told me, 'No, you don't look like a French actress, this will not work,'
It was very funny. Six months before the audition, I had gone to America to try to find an agent. And suddenly I had a dream about Javier Bardem. It was so strange, because I never dream of actors. I think he was my coach or something. And after the dream, suddenly I felt so peaceful. Like, everything is going to be fine. Six months later, I went back to Paris and heard about the auditions, and it wasn't until the second interview that someone told me maybe we would have Javier Bardem [in the film]. I thought, 'Ah, another sign!' Sometimes life and the universe comes into line. The universe is cool!
Bérénice is a big believer in fate. And signs. One of these signs, was not getting parts in her native France and then dreaming of Javier Bardem being her coach. This was prior to getting her big break in the Bond film 'Skyfall'.
