We heard not too long ago the exciting news not only that a biopic was in the works based on the last two years of the life of Princess Diana, but that Naomi Watts would be the star enlisted with the weighty honor of playing the tragic icon. The film, titled Caught In Flight, began shooting this week, and the photos released of Watts in costume are stunning. She bears staggering resemblance to the late princess, and isn’t taking her role lightly.
Naomi admits that the role initially “terrified” her, but that she felt a duty to say yes:
She is a part of our history, an incredible woman and fascinating but a tragic ending. 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.
said the British-born actress. And although she’s nervous, it’s clear she fills the shoes of the princess, at least in looks. According to her costar, Lost‘s Naveen Andrews (sexy man that he is), Watts was the ideal and only choice for the role. Naomi has had close calls at the Oscars in the past; Perhaps this will be the role that finally seals the deal? Take a look at some more snaps from the set in the gallery! And read more at dailymail.
