Naomi Watts As Princess Diana: First Look From 'Caught in Flight' Set (PHOTOS)
After undergoing a dramatic movie makeover, Naomi Watts bears a haunting resemblance to Diana, Princess of Wales, whom she'll portray in the new movie Caught in Flight.
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.
Princess Diana passed away on August 31, 1997. She was 36.
