In early 2013, The Ring actress Naomi Watts was busy attending numerous high-profile events. The beautiful blonde actress stole the spotlight night in a pair of nude pointy slingbacks at the Hollywood Reporter Nominees Night.

Just a few days earlier, she attended the 85th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon.

Eleven years earlier, the British actress starred with Martin Henderson, David Dorfman, Brian Cox, and Daveigh Chase in the 2002 American supernatural horror film The Ring.

Portraying investigative journalist Rachel Keller, she’s the mother of Aidan Keller (David Dorfman), who possesses a degree of mediumship.

A box office success when released theatrically on October 18, 2002, it was followed by The Ring Two and Rings.

“I was having a real hard time with saying yes,” Watts told People in June 2017 about agreeing to star in the film.

“I remember having this conversation with my agent, and he was like, ‘I really, really think you should do this.’ I said, ‘I don’t think I can. I’m just not sure. I just don’t know.’ I was really pushing back on it. Then he actually raised his voice and said, ‘Just say yes. I’m telling you, trust me on this.’”

Born on September 28, 1968, in Shoreham, United Kingdom, Naomi Watts was 34 when the first installment of the American Ring series was released.

David Dorfman turned 9 on February 7, 2002. Born on February 7, 1993, in Los Angeles, he is now an attorney at Capitol Hill in D.C.
