People Are Thrilled That Olivia Colman Is Going To Be The Queen In "The Crown"
She will take over from Claire Foy from season three of the Netflix show.
In absolutely amazing casting news, British actor Olivia Colman will be playing Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix's epic royal drama The Crown, in seasons three and four.
So, Claire Foy, who is on the left, has one more season as the current Queen and Olivia Colman, on the right, will take over from her next year.
The casting news has excited a hell of a lot of people, particularly Gillian Anderson.
Colman is one of Britain's finest actors. Everything she does is bloody great, from DI Miller in murder detective show Broadchurch...
...to Angela Burr in the alluring Night Manager...
...to Deborah in Flowers, to Godmother in Fleabag, to Sally in Twenty Twelve, to Marion in Thomas the Tank Engine....
...to Doris Thatcher in the epic Hot Fuzz.
Olivia Colman + The Crown = cannot bloody wait.
