Has Princess Diana risen from the grave?
No, it’s just Naomi Watts looking uncannily similar in these newly released photos in full hair and makeup for her upcoming roll as Princess Diana in the film, “Caught in Flight,” set to premiere next year.
Watts, 43, was photographed in London as she was shooting scenes for the film about the last two years of the Princess of Wales’ life before her death in 1997. Filmmakers plan to include the fatal car crash that killed Princess Diana at age 36.
The film will also focus on Di’s relationships with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan, as well as Dodi Fayed, who was with her in the car crash when she died. Khan will be played by “Lost” actor Naveen Andrews.
The British actress has reportedly admitted she is “absolutely terrified” of playing the prestigious role of the princess.
“It is such an honor to be able to play this iconic role,” Watts said in a statement when she got the gig. “Princess Diana was loved across the world, and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen.”
