    Hmmm, interesting choice -- but I wonder why they chose someone who's 8 years older to play Margaret, who was 4 years younger than Elizabeth. (Helena Bonham Carter was born in 1966 and Olivia Coleman was born in 1974.)

    Maybe just maybe she will surprise us.

    I wasn't overly impressed with the Margaret in S2 ... so maybe HBC might better.

    CF is who I will miss miss miss.

    She may, I've never been very keen on her acting though. I will miss Foy terribly ( her beautiful eyes) but the next season she'll be getting on, our Elizabeth, so we need a more nature actress..

    I watched Olivia Coleman in "Hyde Park on Hudson" yesterday. She played the Queen Mother during George VI's visit to Franklin Roosevelt. I wasn't familiar with OC before; I think she'll do a great job as Elizabeth.

    And I love HBC in anything. (She also played the Queen Mother . . . in "The King's Speech.") I think they'll make it work with her playing against OC.

    I don't understand why the current cast can't be aged with makeup tricks. I understand aging makeup can be off putting and almost comical, at times, but I'd rather enjoy further performances by CF et al, wearing bad makeup, than accepting new cast members.

    That said, I have no idea how far forward in time The Crown is going. Anybody know how many more seasons are being planned?

    My understanding is the production as a whole didn’t want to bother with hours and hours in makeup daily for everyone as the series moved forward. Replacing the actors has been the plan all along.

    I think the series is intending to go six seasons, a decade or so a season.

    Even with a day of letting this Margaret news sink in, I’m still sore about it. Not many actors I truly dislike, but she’s one of them. Hopefully Margaret’s story is shown less next season as she divorces and things lead up to the Diana years. I can only hope!
