Deja vu? Naomi Watts is a Princess in love on set of film about final years of Diana's life
6 July 2012
Taken just weeks before her death, they were the pictures that showed the world that Princess Diana was in love with Dodi Al Fayed.
Now actress Naomi Watts, bearing a striking resemblance to the Princess, has revived memories of the famous 1997 images on the set of a new film about the final years of Diana’s life.
She shared an embrace with Cas Anvar, who plays the son of former Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed, on the deck of a yacht, and in another scene captured Diana’s pensive look as she walked alone in a paisley swimsuit.
Ms Watts – who at 43 is six years older than the Princess was when she died – has said she is ‘terrified’ of playing such an icon on film.
The movie from German director Oliver Hirschbiegel was called Caught In Flight, but is now simply titled Diana.
The film will follow the last two years of Diana's life before her death and focus on her relationship with heart surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan who is being portrayed by Lost star Naveen Andrews.
But it will also look at her time with Dodi, who she was with at the time she died and the movie will include her death, aged 36, in a car in a Paris tunnel in 1997 with the Egyptian playboy.
And while Naomi, who was initially hesitant to take the role, has captured the Princess's grace, elegance and doe-eyed look, the producers have been careful, it would seem, not to completely imitate her wardrobe, with most costumes resembling those belonging to the late Princess.
