Is Olivia Colman up to playing a British Queen? I thought Helen Mirren had the right of first refusal for all movie roles based on female British monarchs.
The Crown returns to Netflix, but not until 17 November 2019. Olivia Colman, winner of this year’s the Academy Award for Best Actress* for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite replaces Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.
* And the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
