Princess Irulan's role in Frank Herbert's Dune isn't exactly what most people would consider physically demanding. While the characters in the book wage huge battles and endure harsh desert environments, Irulan's is very well-suited to doing some serious relaxation on what appears to be a beautiful beach.
The Black Widow star has recently updated followers on her life via her personal Instagram account, and she states that she is not only studying Frank Herbert's Dune, but that she is also sitting comfortably in the sand. Read the whole article here, which also includes a funny caption.

Florence Pugh was the first actor to join the Dune: Part 2 cast who wasn't in the 2021 film, according to the sequel's cast, who include Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, and Dave Bautista. Pugh is the narrator of Princess Irulan, but also Christopher Walken as the evil Emperor Shaddam IV.
I won't go into detail about what audiences should expect from the star's role in the upcoming blockbuster sequel... although she is a huge part of the book's most important themes...
Florence Pugh's announcement that she'll be reading Dune this week is an example of a strange timing, as Dune: Part 2 is now well underway. The film's production started in the middle of last month, and the announcement was made with a photo of the feature's first clapperboard:

Florence Pugh is busy with a number of projects in the pipeline, so it's nice to see her taking some time to recuperate between performances and promotions. In addition to working on Dune: Part 2, she'll soon be preparing to do press for Olivia Wilde's next film Don't Worry Darling, which will premiere at the Venice Film Festival next month.
Dune: Part 2 is now scheduled to premiere exclusively on November 17, 2023, following a change in its release date last month.
