Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip Role Recast
People Magazine reports that both Foy and co-star Matt Smith’s role will be recast because the series will do a time jump in The Crown Season 3. “That’s not a shock – we always knew when we signed up to it,” says Foy.
Foy revealed that her appearance for two seasons in The Crown is fine for her. The British actress said that while she enjoyed the role and will also miss portraying the Queen, Foy noted that it’s a tough job.
“It’s long, a good nine-mouther. And that’s a lot of your life that you sign over to it,” said the actress. However, Foy stated that just like the rest of The Crown viewers, she is also interested to see where the series will go and what will happen next.
