At the 58th Annual Emmy Awards, Kingsley was full of appreciation for Aishwarya’s beauty and talent when he spoke about the forthcoming movie ‘The Last Legion’ by filmmaker Doug Lefler.
Kingsley called Ash “an excellent and outstanding actress” and said her fans are “in for a big surprise” with her performance in ‘The Last Legion’.
Praising Aishwarya’s beauty, Kingsley told Sheeraz Hasan, founder of hollywood.tv: “She is a shining example of beauty from India and I’m sure we will be seeing her in more Hollywood movies real soon.”
In ‘The Last Legion’ Ash plays a warrior princess. She will be seen horse riding and sword fighting in the movie.
The film is set in 470 A.D. when the Roman Empire was crumbling and the last Roman emperor, the 12-year-old Romulus Augustus, escaped the rebels and set forth on a perilous trek to Britain with a small band of companions to track down his last legion.
Apart for Aishwarya and Kingsley, the film stars Colin Firth, Thomas Sangster, Peter Mullan, John Hannah and James Cosmo.
The movie has been shot in Tunisia and Slovakia.
