The characters Lady Di (Emma Corrin) and Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) are the main novelties of season 4 of the series “The Crown” at the end of which Olivia Colman will say goodbye to the role of Queen Elizabeth II will give her place to the actress Imelda Staunton, reports EFE.
The fourth season will be released on November 15 on the Netflix platform. Two more seasons were confirmed, each with six episodes.
This elaborate production of Peter Morgan has triumphed so markedly that the sequence of his characters resembles that of a royal family.
Thus, after Claire Foy’s brilliant debut as the young Queen Elizabeth, it was the turn of actress Olivia Colman, who played the queen in adulthood and who at the end of season 4 will part with this role, along with his colleague Tobias Menzies (Prince Philip of Edinburgh) and Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret).
But before giving up the crown, Olivia Colman participated with her set colleagues in a press conference in which she revealed some details of the next season.
Diana enters the scene
The appearance in the palace intrigues of Princess Diana, who married Prince Charles in 1981, marks, according to Colman, another breaking point between tradition and modernization in British royalty.
“I think he was kind of a catalyst for future generations by trying to do things differently,” she said. “It’s interesting what we know now about Diana. Seeing how the drama evolves is a disturbing thing “, added the actress.
Tobias Menzies talks about the intentions of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip towards the new princess.
“They want their son to be happy. But they also want her to support him for their son, who will one day be king. Someone who is strong behind him and who helps him in this role. There is a fine mix between the family and the public office “, the actor confessed.
