Here’s what Emma had to say…

Explaining how they built Princess Diana’s narrative for The Crown through her shifting mental and physical states: “There became a clear connection from Diana’s unstable childhood to her looking for something welcoming… We knew she was a very warm person who gravitated towards people. She was looking to be embraced in something very warm and very familiar, and she didn’t find that at all; she found the exact opposite with the royal family.”

On being famous and the responsibility as a public figure: “It’s hard when you have a platform, but I want to make everything feel very authentic. I think we’ve become much more aware of our positions in our communities and the circles in which we operate.”

About their new play in London, Anna X, inspired by the story of the fake German heiress Anna Delvey: “It’s a bit mad… I knew we had a good show and a gem of a script, but I thought there was going to be a massive generational divide.

On their brother coming to see the play, Anna X: “It was so much fun, because there are so many lines about how dysfunctional and hilarious dating apps are. He’s going to hate me for saying this, but he has the most amazing dating app stories. When we were taking our bows, I winked at him, and he was just screaming and applauding.”

There was much talk about a cut scene from The Crown, where Emma Corrin performs “All I Ask Of You” from The Phantom of the Opera. Get the details!
