Emily Blunt was “completely shocked” and “slightly terrified” when she found out she was the first choice for Mary Poppins.

The ‘Devil Wears Prada’ actress was so taken back by director Rob Marshall asking her to take on the iconic role for the sequel, ‘Mary Poppins Returns’, that she thought he was asking her to marry him.

Recalling their phone conversation on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, she said: “He called me, and I’d been friends with him for a while, and I knew there was sort of a different energy behind this phone call, it was so charged and he was so excited to tell me this news.

“It was such a ceremonious phone call, and then you realise why.

This is such an iconic character, and then you realise how much of an imprint she’s made on people, and the first movie is so beloved.”

‘Marry Poppins Returns’, a sequel to the 1964 classic, which starred Dame Julie Andrews in the titular role, is set to hit cinemas on December 25, and focuses on some of the material featured in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels.
