Josh O’Connor and Marion Bailey have joined the cast of Netflix original series The Crown Season 3. Josh O’Connor will play Prince Charles and Marion Bailey will play the Queen Mother in The Crown cast.
Josh O’Connor said: “I am thrilled to be joining The Firm for the next instalment of The Crown. Seasons 3 and 4 will follow some of the most turbulent events in the Prince of Wales’s life and our national story and I’m excited to be bringing to life the man in the midst of it all. I’m very aware it’s a formidably talented family to be joining, but reliably informed I have the ears for the part and will fit right in.”
Marion Bailey added: “Wonderful to be joining The Crown. It’s a brilliant show and we have a tough act to follow but what a gift to be playing the fascinating and greatly loved Queen Mother. Thrilled to be on board and working with such a top notch team.”
They join a The Crown cast that includes Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Ben Daniels as Antony Armstrong-Jones, Margaret’s husband, and Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip.
The Crown tells the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world — Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street – and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Two houses, two courts, one Crown.
The Crown Season 3 will launch in 2019.
