I’m dreading the reaction to playing Princess Diana, says Naomi Watts

London -  Naomi Watts wants her portrayal of the much-loved Princess Diana to be just right in her new flick.

The movie ‘Diana’ is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel and stars British actor Naveen Andrews as Dr Hasnat Khan and Watts as the British royal.

“I am dreading the reaction amongst the pubic to my playing her. You know that people will complain that you don’t look enough like her, that you’re not tall enough, all those things,” the Sun  quoted her as saying,

“It’s very difficult to play someone who had such a deep impact and left such a lasting memory on the public. Our memory of her is still very fresh and you have to be respectful of that.

“It’s also more complicated and sensitive when you take into account her two boys — William and Harry. But I want to do her justice and help tell her story truthfully,” she said.

In recent pictures from her movie’s set, the 43-year-old actress with her blonde hair and blue eyes has a striking resemblance to the British royal.

After a number of television and low-budget movies about Diana, this film will be the first with a major director and a heavyweight cast.

The film focuses on the years leading up to Diana’s tragic death, aged just 36.

“I was shooting a movie in Canada when she died,” she said.

“I was in a room full of people watching the news about Diana’s death and we were all crying and deeply upset.

“It’s one of those events you never forget,” she added.

Much of the film revolves around her discreet two-year romance with heart and lung surgeon Hasnat Khan, who her friends described as the “love of her life.”
