'The Crown': Helena Bonham Carter Gears Up to Play Princess Margaret

39;The Crown' May Have Found Its New Princess Margaret For Season 3

Funnily enough, Carter played The Queen Mother in 2010's The King's Speech, so she has some familiarity with roles of royalty. This would be the second official recasting for The Crown if the deal goes through, as Olivia Colman of The Night Manager / Broadchurch is already set to replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth.

It has always been known what The Crown's creator, Peter Morgan, has envisioned for the masterful Netflix series: a sweeping saga that follows the British royal family throughout the 20th century.

Netflix apparently hasn't given The Crown the green light to start filming another season, but that hasn't stopped its creators from planning it! The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds.

According to the Evening Standard, Bonham Carter was in the running to play Elizabeth before the decision that she would play Margaret. Bonham Carter made a career out of playing rebels, royals, and corset queens back in her Merchant Ivory days, and this role represents a flawless opportunity to roll all three character types into one famously magnetic woman.

For Carter, playing a member of the royal family is not entirely new territory.

Now all we need is a new Prince Philip and a release date for Season 3. But as synonymous as Foy, Matt Smith, Kirby, and the others have become with their roles, they have worthy successors.

The Crown season 3 could premiere as early as this fall, but we wouldn't be shocked if it is pushed back later to accommodate all of the changes.

Because Margaret is the ultimate naughty little sister, the hungover, chain-smoking next-in-line, who drops further down the ranks as her goodie-goodie sister commands the Commonwealth and gets on with her duty-bound breeding.
