Naomi Watts as Princess Diana: How Does She Look?
Naomi Watts is starring as Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic ‘Caught in Flight’ and recently stepped out for the first time in character to film a scene from the movie. Now that we see what she looks like, is she right for the role?
Watts signed on for the role after Jessica Chastain (‘The Help’) was forced to drop out. The film, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (‘Downfall’), takes place largely during the last two years of Diana’s life, though this particular scene Watts was filming, was a fundraiser for the Royal Opera House, which was her first public appearance in England.
When she signed on for the part, Watts had this to say on playing Lady Di:
It is such an honor to be able to play this iconic role – Princess Diana was loved across the world, and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen.
‘Caught in Flight’ is scheduled to hit theaters in 2013. What do you think of Naomi Watts as Princess Di? Does she have the look down?
