So Far, fans have seen limited glimpses of the X Files and Sex Education star filling the shoes of The Iron Lady, but today, Netflix has given us the first proper chance to see her in full Thatcher gear, as new pictures from The Crown’s upcoming season were released.
These photos are also giving us a first look at Emma Corrin as Princess Diana.
Anderson has recently said that she was indeed very quick to sign up to the role, saying that “there are a few things in life where, if they come your way, you just know that you have to say yes, before the fear says no.” Closer to filming, Gillian Anderson had also said that her heart was beating at a pace that she had never experienced before.
Co-Star Olivia Coleman, who will also be playing Queen Elizabeth II in this fourth instalment has said that Gillian Anderson is amazing as the former British PM, adding that even at the read-through, the moment she opened her mouth, ‘you could feel everyone wanting to do a little silent ‘Yay!”
Season 4, which will be available from the 15th November will delve into the early Diana days and will be the last season with Olivia Colman as The Queen, before she passes on the Crown Jewels to Harry Potter’s Imelda Staunton for the final two seasons.
Don’t forget to set your alarms to the 15th November to be that fly in the room, when Charles met Diana, when Charles met Camilla and when Camilla met Diana!
