WENN reports that during a promotional trip to the UK, Fanning spoke with Clara Markiewicz and Jennie-Lou Hodge, two teens now in remission from leukaemia.

The young women talked to Fanning about her research for the role, as well as their time spent fighting the illness.

Fanning told them: "I have always done a lot of volunteer work at children's hospitals in particular, and I had a friend who passed away from leukaemia.

"I didn't know specifically all the terms and that sort of thing, but I had some personal experience with it, for sure."

Now is Good is due for release on September 19 in the UK.
