Ready for Princess Diana double take?!

We already gave you a fabulous first look at Naomi Watts as Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic Diana (formerly titled Caught in Flight) and now we have the next stunning still of the princess snapped on set.

But who's the hunky costar beside the babe?!

It's Cas Anvar as Dodi Fayed—the Egyptian film producer who was romantically linked to Princess Di just before her death. Fayed was Diana's companion in the infamous car crash in 1997, in which both he and Diana lost their lives.

In the shot, you can see Naomi Diana and Cas Dodi lounging on a luxury yacht on the coast of Croatia as the costars get into character. The scene channels Diana's famous yachting trip just days before her death.

The Diana biopic delves into the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry's mother and heart surgeon Dr. Hasnet Kahn. The film is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel.

In February, the 43-year-old actress gushed over her excitement at taking on the character: "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."

Based on the uncanny resemblance, it certainly looks like Watts is perfect to play the princess! What do you think of the latest shot? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
