Naomi Watts: I Couldn't Not Play Princess Diana
Naomi Watts gets into character before filming scenes for her upcoming film Diana at a community center on Wednesday (August 8) in Hemel, England.
The 43-year-old actress plays the title character, Princess Diana, in the biopic that is set to be released next year.
“An awful lot of pressure comes with [the role], so you want to get it right,” Naomi told an Aussie newspaper about taking on the iconic role. “I was dreading people saying `she looks nothing like Diana‘, and `why her and not somebody else?’. But I couldn’t not do it.”
“Its scary. Sometimes it’s as if you’re watching the ghost of Diana,” her director Oliver Hirschbiegel added about Naomi’s performance.
