Everything We Know So Far About Princess Diana on 'The Crown'
We're expecting BIG things for this role.
Season 3 of The Crown may not be streaming yet, but producers are already looking ahead to Season 4 — and who will play the role of Princess Diana in the popular Netflix series.
According to a new article from The Sun, the job listing for the acting gig reveals quite a bit about what fans can expect of whomever plays Princess Diana. The job posting repotedly seeks a “staggeringly talented young actress” between the age of 18 and 22. The listing is said to continue, "[w]e need a mesmerising new young star with extraordinary range. She has to play charming comedy, flirt and social exhibitionist on the world stage, desperate and lonely self-harmer at her lowest ebb and the kind of psychological intensity of Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby.” This depth of skill certainly sounds like no easy task for actors of any age, let alone someone in their late teens or early twenties.
A source also told The Sun of Diana's upcoming appearance in the show, "[Show creator] Peter [Morgan] is not going to hold back on how Diana impacted the Royal Family, just as he didn’t when he wrote The Queen. It could ruffle a few feathers.”
