Princess Diana was many things in her short life.
A member of the British royal family, a wife, a mother, a kindergarten teacher, a nanny, a charity advocate, a philanthropist, an activist and an inspiration to many.
But she also nearly became… an actress.
Earlier this week, actor Kevin Costner shared that Princess Diana was in talks to appear as his co-star in The Bodyguard 2.
If we told you we were totally chill and nonplussed about this prospect we’d be lying.
In fact, we actually can’t quite believe that nearly happened…
For those that need a refresh, here’s the trailer for the The Bodyguard. Post continues after video.
In a recent interview with People TV, Costner admitted that Diana was nervous about one particular thing in the scrapped sequel – the kissing scenes.
“I just remember her being incredibly sweet on the phone when she asked the questions,” Costner said.
“She goes, ‘Are we going to have like a kissing scene?’ But she said it in a very respectful [way] – she was a little nervous because I think her life was very governed,” he told the show.
He told Diana that “there’s going to be a little bit of that, but we can make that okay too.”
