Queen Olivia Colman! Star reportedly replacing Claire Foy in The Crown

It’s not Colman’s first rodeo with the royals. She portrayed our present Queen’s mother in the film Hyde Park On Hudson. It’s about when George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited President Franklin Roosevelt in 1

What do you think about Olivia Colman playing Queen Elizabeth II for The Crown?

Olivia Colman will take over the reigns from Claire Foy for the third and fourth seasons of "The Crown", it has been reported.

Ms Colman will start filming series three next year, but the shows won't air on Netflix until 2019. However, if English crime shows aren't your thing, you might also remember Colman from The Night Manager, where she acted alongside Tom Hiddleston-and won a Golden Globe.

Meanwhile, The Crown Season 2 spoilers indicate that there is going to be plenty of action and shocking twists during the second season of Netflix's popular biographical drama.

Netflix struck gold once again previous year with their royal drama The Crown.

Given that, Colman is indeed the apt choice for the portrayal of the role as this will mark her third portrayal of a royal role.

Colman, herself a Golden Globe victor, is certainly no stranger to portraying members of the English monarchy-which is basically a rite of passage for young British actors.

"What's so lovely about Claire is her youth", he said ahead of the season one premiere. Meanwhile, she will take on the role of Queen Anne in the upcoming movie, The Favourite.

So far The Crown's executive producers have not made any comments as to who will take over the role of Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, who is now played by actor Matt Smith. Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it.

Broadchurch star Colman, 43, will take over the reins from the programme's current leading star Claire Foy, who has played the Queen in the first season and is to return in the forthcoming second season.

He said: "The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds". The Crown season 2 will arrive on Netflix on December 8.
