The internet is delighted with the return of Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in the new season the crown.
Foy played a young Queen Elizabeth in the first two seasons of the Netflix original drama series based on the royal family. The seasons took place between 1947 and 1964.
Every two seasons, the cast is changed to follow characters who have aged through family history. To finish the fourth season, Olivia Colman turned the role over to Imelda Staunton to take on the role of Elizabeth, and showcase events that occurred during the 1990s and beyond.
In an interview with Netflix, Staunton found playing the Queen in the ’90s “familiar but intimidating.”
She said, “I think the challenge I felt for myself – the extra challenge, if there wasn’t enough on my board – was to be the queen that people recognize so much more now, the older queen.”
Claire Foy [version] It was almost a fashion drama because it looked so long ago, and then Olivia Colman’s play was, again, like a piece of time. [This season] Just feeling more present. I thought, “I can’t fool anyone now,” she continued.
