Naomi Watts Channels The People’s Princess In The First Trailer For The Biopic, Diana
Princess Diana may no longer be with us. But Naomi Watts is certainly keeping her memory alive and well.
The 44-year-old British/Australian actress channels the late royal in the upcoming biopic Diana (previously titled Caught In Flight). Directed by German director Oliver Hirschbiegel, the film follows the Princess during the final two years of her life, which included her divorce from Prince Charles and her highly-publicized relationship with surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan, considered by many to be “the love of [Diana's] life.”
The first trailer of the buzz-worthy biopic has finally arrived and Watts doesn’t disappoint as she absolutely nails effervescent beauty, grace, and charm. Diana also stars Naveen Andrews (Lost) as Dr. Khan, Cas Anvar as Dodi Fayed, and Douglas Hodge as royal butler Paul Burrell.
Diana is due in U.K. theaters on September 20. Check out the trailer below. What do you think of Naomi as Diana?
