The Crown's Olivia Colman & Helena Bonham Carter Share Their Advice For The Successors On The Show

Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter will wrap up their roles as Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret after the upcoming fourth season of The Crown on Netflix.

The two stars have some advice for their successors on the program, which will be played by Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville.

“If she calls me, I’ll be so excited. Then what would you say to Imelda Staunton?” Olivia pondered. “Good luck…the wig’s itchy.”

She added that Imelda, who was most memorable in her role as Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter franchise, “already got a much better walk than me.”

Helena, who will be passing on the torch to Lesley as Margaret, shared that she’d love to pass on one particular item to her.

“It’s like handing a baton. It’s like a relay race, but it never comes back,” she shared. “I want to hand her my cigarette holder and say, ‘Good luck with this.’ That would be nice, wouldn’t it?”

The Crown, season four, is expected to debut on November 15. Watch the newest trailer for the groundbreaking series here…
