Emma Corrin to Play Princess Diana on The Crown Season 4

-

Emma Corrin will play Lady Diana Spencer on The Crown Season 4, Netflix announced today. The Crown Season 3 will launch in 2019.

“Beyond excited and honoured to be joining The Crown for its fourth season,” Corrin said. “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!”

Creator Peter Morgan added: “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.”

Best known for her guest role in ITV 1’s Grantchester, in 2019 Corrin will go on to star as Esme in the upcoming 10-part Warner Brothers/EPIX series Pennyworth. The actress will also soon make her debut film appearance as Miss South Africa in Misbehaviour.

Corrin will be joined in the fourth season by the previously-announced Gillian Anderson, who will play former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

The cast for Season 3 The Crown includes Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Ben Daniels as Antony Armstrong-Jones, Margaret’s husband, Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Emerald Fennell as Camilla Shand, and Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother.

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.
