The Crown Season 3: First Look at Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth

The Crown Season 3 Olivia Colman

As fans know, it's all change for The Crown in season 3, as Olivia Colman takes over from Claire Foy to play a slightly older Queen Elizabeth II.

The star of Broadchurch and The Night Manager takes over from Claire Foy, who portrays the Queen from her engagement to Prince Philip in 1947 to 1963.

With the Royal Wedding and "Paddington 2" in the past, it's time to talk about another very British thing: "The Crown" season three.

While we will still have to wait to see an aged Phillip, we now have our first look at Colman as the Queen.

"I'm so thrilled to be part of The Crown".




And the rest of the new cast is just as impressive with Princess Margaret now being played by Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Daniels starring as Antony Armstrong-Jones. "A proper 'just one more" feeling.

The Crown skyrocketed into popularity after the first season hit Netflix in November of 2016, and only became more popular into the show's second season. "I think Clarie Foy is an absolute genius, she's an incredibly hard act to follow, I'm basically going to rewatch every episode and copy her!"

The first two seasons received critical acclaim for its stellar acting and accurate portrayals of the royal family, with John Lithgow taking home the Emmy for Supporting Actor in 2017 for his performance as Winston Churchill.

There has been no announcement yet of who will play the young Prince Charles, the heir to the throne.
