“Oh, well. One has certainly aged.”
Netflix has kicked off the week by sharing a first glimpse at Olivia Colman taking over the regale role of Queen Elizabeth II, which made Claire Foy a household name and a two-times Emmy nominee.
The first photo from the show’s third upcoming season features Colman as the Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth already rocking Queen E’s iconic 70’s hair helmet, sat sipping tea.
Though the crown certainly is in safe hands given that this would be the third queen Oliva Colman has portrayed, fans of the series are still feeling a little, shall we say, skeptical about the impending massive recast for the new season. The Crown’s teaser has sparked a Twitter meltdown accurately worthy of a true Queen of Drama. But does this mean Colman is off to a good start?
