After the broadcast of the last episodes in November 2020, fans of “The Crown” are still waiting to discover the new season of the Peter Morgan series. In addition to newcomers in the main roles, they will be able to see a French actress.
The Crown prepare his fifth chapter
A year and a half after the release of the fourth season, the new chapter of The Crown keeps waiting. As a reminder, each season of the Peter Morgan show covers more or less a decade of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of England. The fifth will take place during the 90s. At that time, the failed marriages of three of the Queen’s four children caused a lot of talks, as did the fire at the famous Windsor Castle.
Real cardboard for Netflix, The Crown has a very good reputation for the level of his writing, but also for his sets or his performances. I have to say that its producers have put the budget to ensure its quality. Which in particular attract very good actors. In the new burst of episodes, it is Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville, and Jonathan Pryce that we can see respectively interpret the queen, Princess Margaret, and Prince Philip. And there will also be a French actress in the credits.
Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu will be in the news season
Present in particular in Ten percent, Philippine Leroy Beaulieuwho recently got some great exposure overseas with her role in the hit series Emily in Paris, can thus be seen in the new season of The Crown. It was the actress herself who revealed the information to the DailyMail. However, she clarified that she doesn’t play a leading role in the British series. But the actress still thoroughly enjoyed the experience of filming in one of the biggest hits in Netflix history. Like many others, she was also impressed by the quality of the script of the series:
It was a very small role but it was really fun and I was so, so happy to be there. Each episode is like a little movie. It’s crazy how well written it is.
The role won by Leroy-Beaulieu is that of Monique Ritz, the widow of Charles Ritz. The latter sold the famous hotel bearing his name to Mohamed Al-Fayed, the father of Lady Diana’s last husband, in 1979. It was in this establishment that the princess and her husband spent their last night, before the accident that killed them in 1997. The Crown will obviously evoke this important passage of the reign of the queen, which had a huge impact in the United Kingdom and in the world.
We will have to wait several more months before we can see Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu at work in the British show, because season 5 of The Crown will be released on November 5, 2022, on Netflix.
