Two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts, who launched her career in 2001's mystery film "Mulholland Drive," was chosen by Netflix to be its lead female actress in the forthcoming psychological thriller, "Gypsy."
New images show the actress hard at work shooting scenes even on the day of her 48th birthday.
Watts, who has two kids, was recently reported to have split up with partner Liev Schreiber.
The couple were together for 11 years, and news of their break up shocked the entertainment industry that is still reeling from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce.
The 48-year-old actress apparently did not let her personal life interrupt her work as she decided to continue filming with the drama even though it was her 48th birthday.
The images show the actress wearing a black and white skirt and cream silk blouse as she walked the streets of Greenwich Village area in New York City.
Watts looked focused shooting scenes displaying the level of professionalism that snatched her the Netflix series' lead role.
Naomi Watts For Netflix's "Gypsy"
Earlier this year, video streaming giant Netflix announced that Watts would be the female lead in its upcoming original psychological thriller "Gypsy."
Watts will give life to the character of Jean Holloway, a therapist who has intimate relationships with the people associated with her patients.
Her illicit relationships would apparently put them all in danger.
"Gypsy's" first two episodes will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson who also helmed "Fifty Shades of Grey."
The drama consists of 10 episodes lasting an hour each and is set to debut next year.
The actress began her acting career in television back in Australia. She gained praise for her work opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in 2015's "Demolition" where she portrayed Karen Moreno, a customer service representative who shared life experiences with Gyllenhaal's banker character.
She was also part of Michael Keaton's critically acclaimed film "Birdman."
Fans are excited to see the actress display once more her laudable performance when "Gypsy" arrives on Netflix in 2017.
