The Crown has cast Prince Charles and the Queen Mother for its next instalment.
Josh O’Connor (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Marion Bailey (Allied) will take over the roles of Prince Charles and the Queen Mother, respectively.
“I am thrilled to be joining The Firm for the next instalment of The Crown”, O’Connor said. “Seasons three and four will follow some of the most turbulent events in the Prince of Wales’ 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.”
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 Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies and Helena Bonham Carter.
