The Crown Set To Cast The Duchess Of Cambridge
The sixth and final season of the hit Netflix show, the Crown, is already being cast and reportedly they’re looking for an actress to portray the Duchess of Cambridge.
There is also currently a call for actors between the ages of 16 and 21 who bare “a strong physical resemblance” to Princes Harry and William.
According to reports, the series will cover the period leading up to and encompassing the first half of the Noughties, when the now Duke and Duchess met at University, delving into the early stages of the relationship between them.
However, it’s not expected to be a very significant role and a source says they will only cast the role if they find the perfect actress for the job, with the series focusing on Her Majesty’s reign during the late 90s and early 2000s.
The fifth season of the show will be available on Netflix towards the end of 2022 and will see Dominic West, Elizabeth Debicki and Imelda Staunton take on the roles of Prince Charles, Diana, Princess of Wales, and the Queen.
Staunton speaking on her experiences playing Her Majesty, stated: “I think my sort of extra challenge as if I needed it, is that I’m now doing the Queen that we’re a little more familiar with. With Claire Foy, it was almost history and now I’m playing one that people could say ‘she doesn’t do that,’ ‘she’s not like that,’ and that’s my personal bête noire.”
Adding that not up to her, but “up to producers and directors” on the decision to post a disclaimer about the show and to which degree it is a work of fiction, continuing on to say: “This isn’t verbatim; this isn’t taken from diaries. You’ve got to use your imagination, and I’d like to allow the audience a bit of intelligence. You can’t know that’s what Margaret and Elizabeth were talking about.”
