The Internet is delighted as Claire Foy returns as Elizabeth II in the final season Crown.
Foy played young Queen Elizabeth in the first two seasons of the Netflix original drama based on the royal family. It took place between the years 1947 and 1964.
Every couple of seasons the actors were changed to follow the aging characters throughout the family history. At the end of Season 4, Olivia Coleman passed the role to Imelda Staunton to take on the role of Elizabeth, showing events that take place during the 1990s and beyond.
In an interview with Netflix, Staunton found the role of Queen in the 1990s “still terrifying.”
She said, “I think that I felt – extra challenge, if there was a little bit on my plate – being a queen that people recognize a lot more now, an older queen.”
“Claire Foy’s [version] It was almost a costume drama that seemed so long ago, and then there was Olivia Colman, like a period piece. [This season] it just feels like it’s more present. I thought, “Now I can be stupid,” he said.
