Lourdes' role in WE is revealed

Madonna's daughter Lourdes' highly anticipated role in WE has been revealed.

The 14-year-old sent speculation into overdrive after being spotted in a schoolgirl's uniform on the set of her mother's second directorial effort, but her part has remained shrouded in secrecy - until now.

Lead actress Abbie Cornish, who plays New York socialite Wally Winthrop, said Lourdes plays her younger on-screen self in the romantic drama.

"She actually plays a younger version of my character. She's a super-cute, younger version of my character," she told MTV.

Abbie explained that because they portray the same person, they never got to share actual screen time.

The film, directed and co-written by Madonna, focuses on the affair between King Edward VIII (James D'Arcy) and American divorcee Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough), plus a contemporary romance between Abbie's character Wally and a Russian security guard (Oscar Isaac).
