Katie Holmes first took on the role of Jackie Kennedy back in 2011 for the TV mini-series, The Kennedys, and she’s back once again playing the iconic former First Lady. The actress was spotted on the set of The Kennedys: After Camelot, looking exactly like the fashion icon.
Holmes channeled Kennedy in a printed headscarf and tan wrap coat, perfectly capturing her classic style. Between her deep-set eyes and angular features, the actress bears a striking resemblance to the late John F. Kennedy’s wife.
The actress was also spotted embracing the actor who plays Maurice Tempelsman, Kennedy’s last companion, on the set of the mini-series (above). The duo began their long-lasting relationship in 1980, five years after the death of her second husband, Aristotle Onassis.
Upon first glance, it’s obvious that Holmes is perfect for the role, but her resemblance to Kennedy isn’t the only reason why she was cast. “Katie is brave, committed, and perfect for this role. She is a strong, talented woman who understands how special and respected Jackie Kennedy, and then Jackie Onassis, was as an international icon,” said Reelz CEO Stan E. Hubbard.
