Last week, Naomi Watts' "Caught in Flight" co-star Naveen Andrews said that Watts was the only actress who could play Princess Diana onscreen.

"I don't think anyone else could have done it," the former "Lost" star told the Press Association. "There's no one else."

Now you can judge for yourself: New pictures of Watts as Princess Diana on the set of "Caught in Flight" have surfaced online, and the Oscar-nominated actress looks like the late princess's doppelgänger.

Watts was cast as Princess Diana back in February. The role was initially earmarked for Jessica Chastain.

"It is such an honor to be able to play this iconic role -- Princess Diana was loved across the world and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen," Watts said in a statement at the time of her casting.

"Caught in Flight," -- which comes from "Downfall" director Oliver Hirschbiegel -- is set to focus on Diana's long-time love affair with Dr. Hasnat Kahn (Andrews), the "love of her life." The film will apparently show "how finding true personal happiness for the first time allowed [Princess Di] to evolve into a major international campaigner and humanitarian."

"Whenever you work, usually if something has a chance or the potential to be good it usually starts with a good script and I'm very happy with the script and Naomi is doing it and she's wonderful," Andrews said. "I'm very much looking forward to shooting."

Said Watts: "The filmmakers came to me and it's a good script and it's very scary and I kind of wanted to say no but I couldn't."
