The Crown has found its Princess Diana.
Emma Corrin will play Lady Diana Spencer in Netflix's royal drama. Corrin will first appear in season four of The Crown, which is scheduled to begin filming later in 2019. The Crown season three, which does not have a premiere date yet, is the first to feature a new cast and jump forward in time.
"I have been glued to the show and to think I'm now joining this incredibly talented acting family is surreal," Corrin said in a statement released by Netflix. "Princess Diana was an icon and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring. To explore her through Peter Morgan's writing is the most exceptional opportunity and I will strive to do her justice!"
