The Crown cast new Prince Charles and Queen Mother for season 3
New actors have been selected to play the roles of Prince Charles and Queen Mother in the third season of The Crown.
The Netflix series will be entering a new era upon its third instalment and so certain actors have been replaced as the characters get older.
While we might be sad to wave goodbye to certain famous faces, viewers can now look forward to some fresh, new talent on The Crown. Especially after the revelation that showrunner Peter Morgan has cast Josh O’Connor and Marion Bailey to appear in the new season as Prince Charles and the Queen Mother.
Bailey said: “It’s a brilliant show and we have a tough act to follow but what a gift to be playing the fascinating and greatly loved Queen Mother. Thrilled to be on board and working with such a top-notch team.”
Bailey and O’Connor will be joining the likes of Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter, who were recently announced as the new Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret.
Taking over Matt Smith’s role as Prince Phillip is Tobias Menzies.
The Crown seasons 1-2 are available to watch on Netflix.
