FIRST LOOK: Naomi Watts as Princess Diana

by Diana Gavrilina

It must be daunting playing someone as iconic as Princess Diana, but Naomi Watts looks fabulous in new pictures released of her playing the late royal in her latest film, Caught in Flight.

The actress was snapped in Croatia filming scenes from the movie, which will tell the story of the last two years of the princess' life before her death in 1997.

Naomi Watts was pictured wearing the infamous black jacket and white trousers as worn by Princess Diana on her last day alive, as captured on CCTV as she left the Ritz Hotel in Paris before that tragic car journey. In another shot, Naomi is seen wearing a long silver gown marking an uncanny resemblance to the princess.

Naomi's hair was styled to perfection as she filmed a scene showing her arriving at a red carpet event.

In an interview, the Oscar-nominated actress admitted that she found the role hard to resist. 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.'

She added: 'She is a part of our history, an incredible woman and fascinating but a tragic ending.'

The film is thought to focus on Princess Diana's relationship with heart surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan, and will also look at her time spent with Dodi Fayed, who she was with at the time of her death, aged 36, in a car crash in a tunnel in Paris.

From looking at the pictures, we cant wait for the film to come out!
