For nearly three seasons since its debut on Netflix, ‘The Crown’ television show is ready to cast its Princess Diana, a.k.a people’s princess.
To play the role of Lady Diana Spencer, showrunners have casted young Emma Corrin, who is new to Hollywood audience, but not in terms of the cameras, as the soon-to-be everybody’s princess has already shot a drama film ‘Misbehavior’, in which she plays Miss South Africa during the 1970 Miss World competition and in the epic series ‘Pennyworth’.
Although the show is about to air its third season with Oscar winner Olivia Colman as Elizabeth II, show lovers would have to wait for Princess Diana’s acquaintance with the royal family in the fourth season.
Following the announcement of Emma to play the late Diana, ‘The Crown’ mastermind Peter Morgan, described Emma in a release statement, saying, “Emma is a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer. As well as having the innocence and beauty of a young Diana, she also has, in abundance, the range and complexity to portray an extraordinary woman who went from anonymous teenager to becoming the most iconic woman of her generation.”
“Beyond excited” are the words of Corrin, who expressed her joy and readiness to join ‘The Crown’ family of show stoppers. She disclosed, “Beyond excited and honored to be joining The Crown for its fourth season. I have been glued to the show since the first episode and to think I’m now joining this incredibly talented acting family is just surreal. Princess Diana was an icon, and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring. To be given the chance to explore her through Peter Morgan’s writing is the most exceptional opportunity, and I will strive to do her justice!”
In the first two seasons of the show, actress Claire Foy, portrayed the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II between the years of 1947-1963 and scored an Emmy best actress win in 2018, plus a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild awards. Season three will debut later this year and production for the fourth season with our princess will kick start in August.
