No one thought Meryl Streep would make sound Miranda the way she did “I think we all had an idea of what Miranda would sound like. It was a strident, bossy, barking voice. So when Meryl opened her mouth and basically whispered, everybody in the room drew a collective gasp. It was so unexpected and brilliant.” *Anne Hathaway on hearing Meryl’s voice for the very first time during the table read for “The Devil Wears Prada” in New York. The first time all three actresses were in the same room together.
“I remember that first table read and she just submarined everything -she didn’t even raise her voice, it was so frightening.” Emily Blunt recalled. “It was just so fascinating, and I think it’s actually one of my favorite things she’s ever done.”
