Per Sky News, Pugh had previously celebrated the crowd’s energy on Sunday. “Coming in here, the power of this room is because of the first movie," she said.

"We felt that when we went on set every single day. So it feels really, really special being here with the second one. And I'm very, very proud."

There to promote the upcoming sequel to 2021’s Dune, Pugh also described her character, Princess Irulan Corrino, as “quick, wise, intelligent” and “quiet.”

“I had an amazing time coming and just hanging out with these people, let alone actually getting to work with them," she added, according to the publication.

Back in September, Pugh attended the 2023 ELLE Style Awards in London. The star wore an elegant bridal-inspired dress by Alexander McQueen as she sported her spiky platinum blonde pixie.

In August, Pugh also opened up about embracing her body. “I speak the way I do about my body because I’m not trying to hide the cellulite on my thigh or the squidge in between my arm and my boob: I would much rather lay it all out," she told Elle UK for their October issue. “I think the scariest thing for me are the instances where people have been upset that I’ve shown ‘too much’ of myself.”
