It has been twelve years since Naomi Watts (England, 1968) dazzled the world with its critical role in “Mulholland Drive”, this “thriller” psychological resurrected the career of David Lynch at the Cannes Film Festival 2001. A decade after that brilliant debut, the British actress continues to illuminate the Croisette with their talent. “I started my career in Hollywood relatively late, with 31 years … and the good thing about this was that I knew what I wanted, I knew what I wanted to play roles, “Watts said in a meeting with ABC and a few other media on the terrace of the Hotel Martinez in Cannes.
Following the success of “Mulholland Dr.” came “The Ring” (2002), “21 Grams” (2003), “King Kong” (2005) and “J.

Just weeks ago, Watts admitted to British journalists that the role of Lady Di would “absolutely terrified”. “There are many people who have met Diana and there are many books to read and so much information … and each version is different from the other, so it’s hard to know the truth, “admitted the actress on this project which focuses on the” affair “of the Princess and the Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan. “It will be a tough role, a Chinese work. I just hope to do better. “
