The Crown’s Emma Corrin dazzled us all with her romantic performance as Princess Diana during her early years in the royal family. But in keeping with The Crown convention, a brand new actor will slip in the Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara for seasons 6 and 5. Yes, you read that right, there’ll be a season 6 after all!
But she is not the only historic figure who will be performed with a new actor. Learn who is taking on the role of Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the cast, in addition to other info concerning The Crown season 5.
What will “The Crown” season 5 be about?
We all know there are enough present-day royals play to fill a few seasons, but sadly it looks like The Crown won’t be covering anything present. After flip-flopping over whether there will be five or six months, The Crown creator and showrunner Peter Morgan eventually settled on six but clarified that “season six won’t bring us any nearer to current day–it will just let us cover the identical period in greater detail.”
Beyond this, we do not know much yet about what seasons 5 and 6 will comprise. However, Deadline reported that the Crown’s narrative will end in the early 2000s, which would technically include Princess Diana’s tragic death in 1997.
Who’ll play Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the cast?
Imelda Staunton will boldly go where Claire Foy and Olivia Coleman moved before. The Oscar-nominated celebrity, who’s famous for her roles in the Harry Potter franchise and the Downton Abbey movie, has been tapped to star in seasons 6 and 5. She’ll bring The Crown’s narrative of Queen Elizabeth to its conclusion.
“As an actor, it was a joy to see how both Claire Foy and Olivia Colman brought something special and unique to Peter Morgan’s scripts,” Imelda said. “I am really honored to be joining such an exceptional creative team”
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Tenet) will take more than Emma Corrin as Princess Diana. She already looks and dresses like a princess, does not she?! Of course, she got this part.
“It is a dream role. She’s such a remarkable human being and she really does still live in the hearts of so many individuals,” Elizabeth told the Mirror. “I’m overwhelmed, I am terrified, and I’m excited. I can not wait to start.
