Sienna Miller as Hitchock actress Tippi Hedren in new biopic The Girl
Actress Sienna Miller recreates the making of Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic film The Birds as she plays his muse Tippi Hedren in a new BBC2 biopic.
Hitchcock became obsessed with Tippi after he saw her acting in a soft drink advert.

Now an animal conservationist, Tippi invited Sienna to her home at the Shambala Preserve, an 80-acre sanctuary for tigers, lions and leopards in the Mojave Desert.
‘It was important we met so I could explain my background and what sort of a person I am,’ Tippi said.
‘I didn’t want her to play me as a victim. Hitchcock put me through hell, pure hell, but I got out. I was an extremely strong young woman.’
