“The Crown” is a Netflix series that is much loved by the viewers. The show makers are coming up with a new surprise for viewers for the last two seasons of the series. Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki will be playing the character of Diana, the late Princess of Wales for those seasons.
The story is a period drama which will now, in the 5th and 6th series will portray the 1990s and early 2000s. During this period the story will go through a lot of things, as it happened in Diana’s life. The end of Diana’s life in a car accident in 1997 will also be seen along with Prince Charles’ marriage.
The official Twitter page of “The Crown” has announced the news of Elizabeth Debicki. Elizabeth reacted to it excitedly. A role like Princess Diana is surely something any actress dreams of playing someday. Elizabeth, 29, expressed her joy and said Princess Diana is remembered by everyone. She said, “It is my true privilege and honor to be joining this masterful series. Which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one.”
The role of Diana at her young age has been played in the previous season by Emma Corrin who is a fresh face.
The series will be coming with some other changes too in the final two seasons. Actor Jonathan Pryce will replace Tobias Menzies to play the role of Prince Philip now. The character of Queen Elizabeth II will also be essayed by a new face. Instead of Olivia Colman, we will see Imelda Staunton on that role.
“Emma is a bright gifted star who instantaneously enchanted us when she said yes for the role of Diana Spencer. Along with boasting of the purity and prettiness of a young Diana, Emma also has, in abundance, the choice and involvedness to play a surprising lady,” show maker Peter Morgan stated in a report.
