Little Women is one of the best-loved and most widely-read novels of all time, and the emotive coming-of-age classic has also been adapted into numerous TV series and films over the last fifty years.
Winona Ryder lead a star ensemble in the hit movie based on the book in 1994, and last Christmas the BBC delivered a gorgeous three-part series starring Maya Hawke and Big Little Lies star Kathryn Newton.
Rising star Florence Pugh has been cast as Amy March in the latest movie offering from award-winning director Greta Gerwig, and she's admitted that there is 'pressure' to live up to the lofty expectations of fans.
'It's anticipated because it means so much to people,' the star told Harper's Bazaar UK.
'That book, whether you read it as a kid or adult... Yeah, it's pressure, but I'm so excited. It's exciting to be part of something that you know and hope will mean something to many more people.'
Pugh showcased her star quality in her breakout role in 2016's Lady Macbeth, but the 22-year-old actress said she feels 'cheeky' at landing a part amongst Little Women's star-studded cast.
'The film is unbelievable - I'm incredibly lucky to get anything on that film,' she continued. 'I just feel really cheeky, like I can't believe it's happening...'
Pugh features alongside Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, and Meryl Streep.
The story follows the lives of sisters Amy, Jo, Beth, and Meg March as they transition from children to young women amid the backdrop of post-Civil War America in 1868.
Pugh adds that it's the perfect story in the wake of MeToo and Time's Up when women are fighting for change within the industry to create gender equality and better female representation on TV and in film.
As Watson is also a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador for the advancement of gender equality and empowerment for young women, her casting couldn't be more apt too.
'There are so many things [in the book] that are relevant to anyone, everyone here, now, women,' Pugh reflected. 'Conversations of women, I mean it's been a massive thing in the industry, the conversation, and you have this whole a book of these girls, these four fantastic girls.
'And Greta [Gerwig] - I've been in love with her work for so many years, and I have a lot of female idols in that film.'
It was recently reported in the LA Times that the film's focus will be more on the March sisters in their young adult years, their relationship with their mentor Aunt March [Streep] and her decision over which niece she will choose to take with her to Europe.
But Pugh insists that the story stays faithful to the novel.
'It totally stays true to the book - it's about those four girls how different and beautiful they are, and we're trying to do our best,' she added.
The star is currently playing actress-turned-unwitting spy Charlie in BBC One's adaptation of John Le Carré's political thriller The Little Drummer Girl.
Pugh stars opposite Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Shannon in the gripping six-part drama.
The Little Drummer Girl airs on Sundays at 9pm on BBC One.
