WATCH: Princess Diana biopic trailer released

A two-minute trailer for the ‘Diana’ biopic, which will document the last two years of the late Princess Diana’s life and her romance with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan, has been released.

 

The late British royal – who is played by Naomi Watts – is shown in a montage of clips with her heart surgeon lover Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) in the two-minute trailer.

 

Speaking to a friend in the footage, Diana – who died in a car crash in 1997 – says: “He doesn’t treat me like a princess. It’s almost like he doesn’t know who I am.”

 

The trailer also features clips of the pair enjoying the early stages of their relationship, during which Hasnat was said to have struggled to deal with the press.

 

He says: “If I marry you, I have to marry the whole world too.”

 

The clips mark the end of the former couple’s relationship and goes on to show Diana getting together with Dodi Al Fayed – who is played by Cas Anvar – but he is not shown as the late royal’s last serious love interest.

 

The movie – which documents the last two year’s of the princess’ life – features Juliet Stevenson as Sonia, a character who is an amalgam of Diana’s friends, and Douglas Hodge as Paul Burrell, the princess’ butler.

 

The highly anticipated release is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel with a screenplay by playwright Stephen Jeffreys.

 

 

 

Naomi Watts was “nervous” about nailing Princess Diana’s accent

 

Naomi Watts admitted she was “very nervous” trying to copy the accent of the late Princess Diana because she worried she wouldn’t do her “distinct voice” justice.

 

The 44-year-old actress is set to play the late royal in new biopic ‘Diana’ and admits she was worried about whether she would be able to sound like her.

 

Speaking to Total Film magazine, she said: “I was very nervous about the accent.

 

“She had a very distinct voice – she came from aristocracy so she was quite posh, but there was a warmth there, too. Her accent wasn’t too ‘fruity’.

 

“She also had this thing where the bottom half of her face didn’t move that much.”

 

In one pivotal scene in the movie – which focuses on the final two years of Diana’s life before her death in 1997 – Naomi recreates Diana’s famous interview with BBC’s ‘Panorama’ show, in which she said there were “three of us” in her marriage to Prince Charles.

 

The actress reveals she studied the interview rigorously in order to perfect the iconic moment in British history.

 

She added: “I watched it pretty much every day during make-up; I went running with it playing in my iPod.

 

“It was probably the thing I was most committed to getting exactly right – the head moves, the eye moves, the hair – because everyone knows it so well. It’s such an extraordinary piece of TV.”
