The actress is currently filming Robbing Mussolini in Rome.  

Little has been revealed about the movie, but it is likely to focus on the ruthless Italian dictator of the same name, who ruled over the country from 1922 to 1943.

Forming the Fascist party in 1919, the journalist used his organised of ex-war veterans to – known as Black Shirts – to terrorise his political opponents, and after joining the coalition government in 1921, gradually took power as dictator.

Eventually Mussolini was overthrown by Allied troops at the height of the Second World War, and after fleeing north, was captured by Partisans and shot in 1945.

Despite being buried in an unmarked grave in 1946, Mussolini’s body was famously stolen by Fascists supporters before being recovered, missing a leg, four months later.  

It’s been an exciting few months for the thespian after she soared to fame at the end of last year due to her role as Elena in The Undoing alongside Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.

As Cantwell’s plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a remarkable young woman begins to rekindle in him the hope of renewal.

Based on the last full-length novel by Ernest Hemingway, the movie captures a fleeting moment of immortality where time stands still.

Matilda has previously revealed that her first ever role was the lead in an Italian film after an open casting call and she got the part as the director was looking for a ‘non-professional actress who had a specific accent from a specific region in Italy’. 

The star said that she has never studied acting and has instead learnt on the job, which can be both ‘great’ and ‘frightening’.
