The British star is tipped as the frontrunner to replace Vanessa Kirby in the role following creator Peter Morgan's re-casting of the current stars playing younger versions of the British royals. This includes Foy, who won an Emmy in the lead role, and was " truly sensational in the part, even more so in season 2 than season 1", according to /Film's Chris Evangelista in his review of the second season of The Crown.

Kirby told BAZAAR.com she relished playing Margaret's "dark nights of the soul" in Season 2, and we're sure to see more of that from Margaret in coming episodes. Robert Lacey, history consultant for the series, confirmed Margaret's divorce from Antony-Armstrong Jones (played by Matthew Goode in Season 2) will be depicted in the third season.

Pro tip: there's one episode particular that is absolutely zero craic to watch with your parents on Christmas Day. Morgan previously said he meant to replace key cast members in later seasons, to better portray the characters as they aged.

Along with Foy, season one starred Matt Smith, Victoria Hamilton, Vanessa Kirby, John Lithgow, Nicholas Rowe, Pip Torrens, Jeremy Northam, Ben Miles, and Billy Jenkins.

Nick Saban is complaining about something that happens almost every week
If they can play-action pass you on first and second down, because their running game is so good, they're hard to defend. We have been fortunate to have a few, and I just want to help the players finish the season the best way that we can".


The Netflix royal drama is near a deal to have Carter take on the role in the upcoming third season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Honestly, we reckon the move could go either way. Carter is especially a huge nab for Netflix, having played her fair share of royalty - either proper or rebellious - before. Bonham Carter is truly a brilliant actress, but after too many turns as wacky Tim Burton characters, we're anxious she could ham this up a bit.

Both she and Colman portrayed the Queen Mum: Colman in films Hyde Park on Hudson and Bonham Carter in the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech.
