She did channel Diana. She did not have to look exactly like her. I was not sure about her playing Diana but she sure carried it off, very captivating performance. This actress has a great future.

Season 4 won the Golden Globe for best drama series, what is ok when I look at the competition.
I think it was nicely done and when I watched it, I was quite impressed with Josh O'Connor as Charles, Emma was ok as Diana but nothing more.

But looking at the competition, I was quite surprised to see Josh actually win, even more so Emma.
Having said that, I would have bet a years' salary on Gillian Anderson win for her portrait of Maggie T., as I thought she was superb. So her winning a GG was an absolute no brainer to me, I thought her performance was the highlight of season 4, outstanding.
Looking forward to season 5.

Sorry, do you mean the actress's mother resembled Diana? and people fainted when they saw her? honestly!

Completely agree about Gillian Anderson she was outstanding as the Iron Lady.

I'm a little late joining this discussion because I just finished watching the series.

I actually learned quite a bit from it. There were a couple things I did fact-check to make sure I knew the difference between truth and fiction.

I didn't know Her Majesty made that fantastic speech when she was only 21 and not yet Queen.

I knew nothing about Aberfan. That broke my heart.

I didn't know Prince Charles actually did say, "Whatever 'in love' means" during that interview. Poor Diana. I saw the real interview, and I thought Diana handled it pretty well.

But - LOL!! - did any one see that big old rat that ran across the floor in front of the Queen Mother when they were waiting for the call from Prince Charles? Oh my goodness!!

I liked the series, warts and all.

Season 5 of the crown. They're going to replace the awful actress who played Diana in season 4.

Yes, the awful actress who won a Golden Globe for the role, didn't she?

The same questionable golden globes that nominated Music. Anyway we'll see if I like the new girl better.

Jonathan Pryce has been cast as Prince Philip ok I'm not sure about that casting?

Lesley Manville will be playing Princess Margaret

Ista 03-28-2021 11:00 AM

Lesley Manville is excellent in whatever role she takes on, and Jonathan Pryce is an interesting choice for Prince Philip. I'm not sure what the casting indicates about which direction the writers are going to push the narrative.

If I'm not mistaken, they planned to change Emma Corrin with Elizabeth Debicki because of the time frame, Emma would play Diana in her early 20s and Elizabeth would play Diana in her mid-30s.

Will be interesting to see the other cast changes for Camilla, the Queen Mother, Princess Royal and so forth.

In the episode "Fairytale," did anyone see that massive rat that ran across the floor in the room the Queen Mother was in? Hope that was staged. Gross!

On edit: About one minute into the episode.

An Ard Ri 04-07-2021 03:50 PM

The filming of Season 5 will begin in July so I think it will be to late 2022 before it be released.
