Claire Foy Is 'Grief-Stricken' About Ending Royal Run On 'The Crown' With Matt Smith!

Claire Foy is feeling “grief-stricken” about wrapping up the season two shoot for her hit Netflix royal drama The Crown!

“We finished about a week ago so it feels very much grief-stricken, but yeah, it was amazing,” the 33-year-old Golden Globe winner told the Associated Press while attending The Crown‘s For Your Consideration Event at Netflix FYSee Space on Wednesday (May 24) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“It was amazing to be together again and hopefully it’s a good one,” Claire added. “You never really believe it’s over with The Crown because it’s very much shot like a film so the chance that you do re-shoots or something like that is quite high. It was a very surreal day, I found it very odd.”

“It’s always difficult to leave behind, but hey, we pass it on to passage new and to new people and I’ll watch with intrigue and pride,” Matt concluded.

Claire and Matt are set to be replaced with older actors after season two, which will hit Netflix later this year.

Claire Foy Is the Frontrunner for Lisbeth Salander in 'The Girl in the Spider's Web'

Claire Foy, best known for her work on Netflix’s The Crown, is reportedly the frontrunner for the role of Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming movie The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

The role was previously played by Rooney Mara in the English-language version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but Sony Pictures decided to not move forward with the planned sequels.

A reboot to the franchise, starting with the fourth book in the series, is being planned with Fede Alvarez directing.

Claire Foy Reveals 'The Crown' Wedding Scene That Was Cut

Claire Foy is opening up about a scene that never made it to The Crown.

The 32-year-old actress, who plays young Queen Elizabeth, really enjoyed something from the wedding that was left on the cutting room floor.

“My favorite scene with Matt Smith was never in the program, unfortunately. That was our wedding night, that’s all I’ll say!” Claire said during the 2017 BFI & Radio Times TV Festival held at the BFI Southbank on Saturday (April 8) in London, England. “It was absolutely hilarious for all the wrong reasons.”

Also in attendance at the festival that day were Maggie Smith, Jenna Coleman, and Thandie Newton.

Claire Foy & Matt Smith Are Hard at Work on 'The Crown' Season 2!

Claire Foy and Matt Smith are spotted on set filming scenes for the upcoming second season of The Crown on Monday (February 20) in London, England.

Season two of the hit Netflix series will debut later this year and the cast will reportedly change for the third season.

Peter Morgan, the show’s creator, recently spoke out about how the early 1960s is the latest era that Claire would probably be able to play Queen Elizabeth unless they were to do “silly things” with her makeup.

The Crown's Claire Foy & Matt Smith May Be Recast As Characters Age

Claire Foy and Matt Smith – who play Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, respectively, in their hit Netflix series The Crown – might end up having their roles recast.

The show’s creator Peter Morgan explained why the 32-year-old actress and the 34-year-old actor might be replaced eventually.

Peter shared that he doesn’t see the need to spend hours in makeup and/or CGI to make them appear to age as much as their real-life characters.

“I feel that when we reach 1963-64 we’ve gone as far as we can go with [Claire] without having to do silly things in terms of makeup to make her look older,” he told ScreenDaily. “We’d probably need to think about the issue of recasting everybody and so those conversations are happening now.”

“I couldn’t tell you where we’ll come out,” he added. “It’s a big thing to go on again. Everybody needs to look at one another and [ask] under which circumstances and what terms would we do it.”
