Naomi Watts As Princess Diana: First Look From ‘Caught in Flight’ Set (PHOTOS)
Donning a blonde wig, the actress, 43, was spotted on set this weekend, and had an uncanny likeness to the tragic royal. The Australian-raised actress was worried about looking “nothing whatsoever like Princess Diana” — but it appears she has nothing to fear.
According to UK’s Daily Mail, Watts admits she was “absolutely terrified” of playing the part of the princess.
“She is a part of our history, an incredible woman and fascinating but a tragic ending,” she said.
“The film-makers came to me and it’s a good script and it’s very scary and I kind of wanted to say ‘no’ but I couldn’t.”
Caught in Flight is set for a release some time next year and will explore Diana’s romance with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan.
Do you think Watts looks like the late Lady Di? Let us know, below.
Princess Diana passed away on August 31, 1997. She was 36.
