Actress Helena Bonham Carter and her reps are in discussions to cast her in the role of Princess Margaret in the critically-acclaimed Netflix drama, The Crown. Bonham would replace Vanessa Kirby, who has played Margaret for the last two seasons.
The decision to recast the roles of the program’s principal characters was made to reflect the passage of time which would necessitate placing older actors in the roles. It has already been reported that Olivia Colman will take over the role of Queen Elizabeth from Claire Foy.
No word yet on who is to replace Matt Smith in the part of Prince Phillip.
