Helen Mirren is not going to be Queen in The Crown - maybe it is for the best
Helen Mirren was fantastic in 2006 The Queen, which has earned her an Oscar. She is wanted by some fans, for her to be in the Netflix’s The Crown when Olivia Colman will have stepped down as Queen at the end of Season 4. Who knows, Mirren can snatch an Emmy or a Globe.
It seems that the dream to watch Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep (as Margaret Thatcher) to be on screen together, to drop a sensation bomb towards Season 5 and 6 of The Crown, will not come true.
That dream is shattered by her statement, when Mirren wants other actresses to try their luck, to reprise the most influential woman in the world.
Maybe it is for the best.
When Claire Foy portrayed the young Queen, people looked forward to her acting masterpiece. She becomes one of the most famous Golden Globes’ recipient.
When Olivia Colman was announced to replace Foy by Netflix while Helena Bonham Carter will have replaced Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret by Season 3, the fans of the show went frenzy. They cannot wait for these two to decorate the dashboard of the Netflix's website.
Imagine if Helen Mirren will be confirmed to be the Queen by Netflix in later seasons? People will say, “Okay, cool, awesome, she is great. Yeay.” There is no shock. There is no awe moment.
Who knows, the momentum of the show could be stagnant.
Mirren as the Queen is too predictable.
The guessing game continues, who can portray Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor after Olivia Colman? Comment your favourite actress below.
