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 doesnâ€™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.
â€śI feel that when we reach 1963-64 weâ€™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,â€ť he told ScreenDaily. â€śWeâ€™d probably need to think about the issue of recasting everybody and so those conversations are happening now.â€ť
â€śI couldnâ€™t tell you where weâ€™ll come out,” he added. “Itâ€™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.”
