Tobias Menzies, Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter happily strike a pose together on the red carpet while stepping out for the season three world premiere of The Crown held at The Curzon Mayfair on Wednesday (November 13) in London, England.

Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.

Gillian Anderson Confirmed as Margaret Thatcher on 'The Crown'

It has been confirmed that Gillian Anderson will play the role of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the fourth season of The Crown!

It was previously reported that Gillian was in talks for the role back in January 2019 and her deal has been in negotiations since early 2018.

The fourth season of The Crown is currently in production, even though season three has not debuted yet. It will begin streaming on Netflix on November 17, two years after season two was released.

“I am so excited to be joining the cast and crew of The Crown and to have the opportunity to portray such a complicated and controversial woman,” Gillian said in a statement. “Thatcher was undoubtedly formidable but I am relishing exploring beneath the surface and, dare I say, falling in love with the icon who, whether loved or despised, defined an era.”
