Actress Naomi Watts has been receiving rave reviews for her performance in the movie The Impossible, which is based on the Tsunami in Thailand back in 2004. Naomi has now revealed how she had an accident when she was younger, which left her with a slight fear of the water.
While talking to Flicks and Bits, Watts explained, “I knew what was going to take place, and I knew that working with water is always difficult – I didn’t know it would be six weeks of it (laughs). You never know how long these things take. But I was glad, as hard as it was, I was glad that we were not doing CGI all of the time.”
She added, “If we’d been in a studio with a green backdrop, arms flailing about, no water, it would have been a very different performance. So I was grateful, despite it being a hard day’s work… for six weeks (laughs). What I liked about it was how the family is connected, and disconnected, and lost, and uncertain from one moment to the next – all good things to play in terms of emotions and fear.”
Naomi Watts stars alongside Ewan McGregor in The Impossible, which has been directed by Juan Antonio Bayona. The Impossible is set to be released in the US on December 21, before then being released in the UK on January 1, 2013.
