Stewart Clarke: Variety
Rising British star Josh O’Connor will play Prince Charles in Netflix’s hit series “The Crown.” He will step into the role of the heir to the throne for the show’s upcoming third and fourth seasons. The producers also announced Thursday that Marion Bailey (“Allied”) will play Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
O’Connor was lauded for his starring role in indie British film “God’s Own Country,” which won him the best-actor prize at the British Independent Film Awards last December. He has also been nominated as a BAFTA Rising Star.
“I am thrilled to be joining The Firm for the next installment of ‘The Crown,'” said O’Connor, who replaces Julian Baring in the role. “Seasons 3 and 4 will follow some of the most turbulent events in the Prince of Wales’ life and our national story, and I’m excited to be bringing to life the man in the midst of it all. I’m very aware it’s a formidably talented family to be joining, but reliably informed I have the ears for the part and will fit right in.” Read More Here
