NAOMI WATTS was supposed to among the stars of hit TV drama BIG LITTLE LIES after discussing a role with pal and executive producer NICOLE KIDMAN.
The King Kong star revealed the news while promoting her new TV show Gypsy, telling The Guardian she was a big fan of the show, which last week (ends14Jul17) landed Kidman and co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, and Laura Dern Emmy nominations.
“We talked about doing that together,” Watts told the newspaper. “I might have been in it.”
The reveal sent fans scurrying to figure out whose role she might have filled, with many suggesting Naomi was lined up to play Dern’s meddling mum Renata Klein as Kidman and Witherspoon were producers and Woodley played a much younger role.
Watts admits she has no regrets about turning the show down and reveals she thought it was “so good” without her.
Naomi also currently stars in the revamp of cult TV series Twin Peaks.
