The Crown New Still Olivia Colman Transforms Into Queen Elizabeth II

The Crown fans have been given the first look at Olivia Colman in action as Queen Elizabeth II in the show's upcoming third season. The Queen had been portrayed by Claire Foy, but that role has now gone to Olivia Colman - famous for her roles in Broadchurch and Peep Show. The caption of the photo reads, "Patience".

Colman, seen in the image drinking a cup of tea and eating a slice of marmalade toast, replaces Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in seasons three and four of the Left Bank Pictures drama.

"I was utterly gripped watching it, a proper "just one more" feeling", the British actress said, according to Netflix.

Demi Moore rips Bruce Willis to shreds at comedy roast
The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis is due to air on July 29 on Comedy Central in the US. Willis and Moore married in 1987, separated in 1998 and divorced in 2000.

Coleman has said she is "thrilled" to take on the role, and has called her predecessor Foy "a real genius" and "an incredibly hard act to follow". The third season is expected to bow in 2019.

It was announced a year ago that Colman would be joining the cast for season three, with Helena Bonham Carter set to replace Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret. Paul Bettany was earlier in talks to play the role of Prince Philip, but couldn't join the cast reportedly because of his earlier commitment to Marvel. The Crown Season 2 has been nominated in the category of Best Drama as well.
