Netflix's 'The Crown' Casts Helena Bonham Carter As Princess Margaret

Netflix's 'The Crown' Casts Helena Bonham Carter As Princess Margaret

In seasons 1 and 2 - the latter of which premiered on Netflix in December - Princess Margaret is portrayed by Vanessa Kirby.

This post contains mild spoilers for The Crown's second season. In it, Margaret married Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Earl of Snowdon (Matthew Goode) and the season ended with her pregnant with one of their children.

Kirby told BAZAAR.com she relished playing Margaret's "dark nights of the soul" in Season 2, and we're sure to see more of that from Margaret in coming episodes.

Not that we'd anxiously awaiting that moment for two seasons or anything.

With the first two seasons spanning approximately 20 years (each season taking place over the course of 10 years or so), it's reasonable for the older actors to take over - and the transition shouldn't be too jarring, with the show making emphatic efforts to subtly age up the original cast as the episodes have gone by.

Helena bonham Carter is rumoured to be next in line to play Princess Margaret in the Netflix drama The Crown. Presumably, Victoria Hamilton will return as the Queen Mother, as the show's cast is joined by Goode and Michael C. Hall.

It was announced earlier that Olivia Colman would be replacing Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth in the upcoming third and fourth seasons, which have not yet been ordered but are expected.

Honestly, we reckon the move could go either way.

Bonham Carter has had plenty of experience playing British royals previously.

If that name rings a bell, but you can't seem to put a face to it, Helena played Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter movies and she also played Queen Elizabeth, Queen Elizabeth II's mother, in The King's Speech! Bonham Carter is truly a brilliant actress, but after too many turns as wacky Tim Burton characters, we're anxious she could ham this up a bit.
