According to Harris the meeting was a fantastic experience in which she asked Mandela who she wished to be presented and what was the take away she wanted people to have from the movie.

Harris told Empire magazine that Mandela’s response was “’I just want the story to be told truthfully. You’ve done your research, you’ve read enough about me just make it your own.”
