Naomi Watts has admitted that playing Princess Diana was more daunting than near-death scenes in The Impossible

This year is a real landmark for Aussie actress Noami Watts - she's received a Golden Globes nomination for her disaster flick, The Impossible, which is in cinemas now, and in August she'll be back on the screen in hotly anticipated Princess Diana biopic, Caught In Flight.

While Noami faces physical and emotional trauma in The Impossible - she stars as a mother caught in the tsunami of 2004 - the actress has said that playing someone as iconic as Diana has been one of her most intimidating acting experiences to date.

She told press: "It took me some time to decide whether to do it. This is the most famous woman of our times."

She describes her character as: "complicated, strong, intelligent and vulnerable."

In The Impossible Naomi acted out flooding scenes in a tank of real rushing water and despite receiving more than her fair share of cuts and bruises, she says: "I'm so glad we did it this way or it wouldn't have had the same effect."

We'll be able to see whether Naomi scores a Best Actress accolade at the Golden Globes Awards 2013 on Sunday 13 January.
