Amid rumours that The Crown would be recasting Claire Foy’s character, Netflix has just announced who will portray Queen Elizabeth into middle age!
Actress Olivia Colman, a Golden Globe winner, will be joining the show for the third and fourth seasons.
The show’s creator Peter Morgan has long said that instead of ‘ageing up’ Claire, they would re-cast her character as the story moves on.
In 2016 he told Variety, “What’s so beautiful about Claire is her youth.
“You can’t ask someone to act middle-aged. Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it. The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds. That informs everything we do.”
We can’t wait for this!
