Helena Bonham-Carter backs ‘drama’ delineation
“I do feel very strongly, because I think we have a moral responsibility ," says Crown's Princess Margaret.'
Actress Helena Bonham-Carter, who plays Princess Margaret in The Crown, is the latest to back Netflix clarifying its elements of fiction.
She said that producers have a “moral responsibility” to tell viewers that it’s a drama.
Speaking on a newly-released episode of an official podcast for the show, she claimed there was an important distinction to make between “our version” of the events depicted, and “the version.”
“It is dramatised,” she said. “I do feel very strongly, because I think we have a moral responsibility to say, ‘Hang on guys, this is not… it’s not a drama-doc, we’re making a drama.’ So they are two different entities.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Netflix wouldn’t comment on the culture secretary’s comments, but a spokesperson noted that had already been widely reported that The Crown was a drama based on real-life events. You think?
