The First Look At Olivia Coleman As The Queen In ‘The Crown’ Is Here


We’re still coming to terms with the fact that all the characters we know and love on Netflix’s hit show The Crown, won’t be returning for season three.

But now we finally have our first look at Olivia Coleman taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth and it’s getting us excited.

Taking over from Emmy nominated, Golden Globe winning Clare Foy, who played the role for the first to seasons, Coleman has some big shoes to fill.

“I’m so thrilled to be part of The Crown, I was utterly gripped watching it, a proper ‘just one more’ feeling,” Colman said in a statement back in April 2018.

“I think Claire Foy is an absolute genius, she’s an incredibly hard act to follow, I’m basically going to rewatch every episode and copy her!”  

The new season will also see the roles of Prince Phillip and Princess Margaret replaced with Tobias Menzies and Helena Bonham Carter joining the cast.
