    These two have just the most insane chemistry I've seen in a while. The 2 seasons they were on was just freakin perfect. Hopefully they could find someone who would have that magical connection with Ms. Colman like how they did Matt and Claire.

      Here I am having watched the whole of season 4 in a day and feeling the same about this cast...

  • Sandra Nokes
    Sandra Nokes 5 years ago +280

    What got me in the series is how manipulated the Queen was by all the people who run the government or the people that they deal with everyday, telling them whether they can marry this person or that person. Whether they can do anything. This has taught me that the Royal Family are prisoners, in their own way, of being The Crown. I've got to say this is one of the most beautiful series or movies I've ever seen. It is so historically correct, evolving the costumes and the periods. I will hate to see these actors not playing these characters after the second season.

    • One MercilessMing
      One MercilessMing 2 years ago +3

      Sandra Nokes--ER II was mostly manipulated by her own mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. I recommend a book entitled King of Fools to give you an idea of how ruthless the Queen Mother was and what an act she put on of being this charming old Granny. It's because of her that Charles wasn't permitted to marry Camilla. Instead, she and her lady-in-waiting, Lady Fermoy (Diana's grandmother) convinced Charles that Diana, being so young, would be able to be manipulated easily and he could keep Camilla as a bit on the side. Then read some of the biographies on the Queen Mother, ER II, Phillip, Charles, Edward VIII and Wallis, George VI, George V and Queen Mary, as well as Princess Margaret. Read the ones on Diana and Sarah as well. You'll see what a mixed bag of holiday nuts these overweening prigs who call themselves "royal" really are.

      Sandra Nokes I think that the Queen Mother manipulates her own daughter (Margaret’s) happiness. I think she would had been happy with Townsend.

      Brandon Cardoza but it's about what people think she wants to keep her crown so she keeps a protocol to make public opinion doesn't turn against

    • Brandon Cardoza
      Brandon Cardoza 4 years ago +15

      The Bike Destroyer it’s aggravating watching her being unable to do the things she wants to do as a human/wife/mother because of the protocols and regulations everyone is throwing in her face.
      That’s why my fav episode is Dear Mrs. Kennedy because she just says “screw you guys” and does it her own way and it works out for the best

    I first started watching the Crown in 2020 during peak COVID times, after watching the movie First Man (from 2018 starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy) before the Crown series, I really like Claire Foy's portrayal of Mrs Armstrong and quite amazed even more of her performance in the first two seasons of the Crown.

    When you can’t just get over about these amazing personas🙌🏼 kept watching seasons 1&2. I must say, they’re perfect for the roles.

    When I read that Claire Foy was not going to be in the third series, I was disappointed because she was so good. Then, we got Olivia Colman. Both ladies were FANTASTIC!!! Enjoyed S3 as much as Seasons 1 and 2. … PEACE to ALL … and … STAY SAFE and HEALTHY.

    I absolutely love the Crown and these two as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. It’s amazing how much they look like the real couple as their younger selfs! But watching Clair talk I could see her coming back as princess Diana to me she looks like her a bit and her body language. Please have her back as Princess Diana. I’d wish they would continue as the characters.

      apparently she does speak irish (gaelic), as she's half irish, though her friends have described her irish as that of an 100 year old person, so we could say she speaks irish the way the queen spoke english.

  • Clara Shawn Morrison

    Matt Smith looks so much like Prince Harry, especially when he had the ginger beard. It's the eyes and expressions and his posture. Which is crazy that I never saw this until he played Prince Phillip. It has made me go back and look at young pictures of Prince Phillip and compare them to Prince Harry (now).
    When the series gets around to current day royal family, it would be amazing to see them bring Matt back as Prince Harry. (Kind of give him a chance to show off his acting chops. Heavens knows he's sexy enough to play the part. )
    Maybe they could bring Clair back as a chimney sweep extra. Lol. It would be cool to look for some of the main characters in the first two seasons as non-speaking, disguised extras. It's like a fun "Easter Egg" hunt. How many Clairs and Matts can you find in Season 4? Lol.
