Naomi Watts has already been transformed for her new film, donning a cropped blonde wig and adopting the shy look epitomised by the late Princess Diana. Now the actress has been spotted recreating some of the royal's most iconic moments for the biopic.

The Aussie actress has been pictured shooting scenes onboard a luxury yacht of the coast of Croatia for 'Caught In Flight'. Naomi, in a blue swimsuit is shown sitting on the end of a long diving board on the yacht, a mirror image of the famous shot taken of the real-life Princess just one week before her death in 1997.

The original photograph was taken on board Diana's boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed's yacht off the coast of Italy. It's was one of the last images taken before the Princess' death in a Paris car crash.

Naomi has been spotted filming more key scenes over the past week. A few days ago she was pictured filming love scenes with her co-star Cas Anvar who plays Dodi. The actors will also portray the couple's final moments in the horrific crash.

Naomi recently claimed she didn’t want to take on the responsibility of playing Princess Diana but that she couldn’t turn down the role:

"I'm looking forward to it, but am absolutely terrified," Watts told The Daily Mail. "It's going to be a tough one. It's a big beast to take on. I just try to do my best."
