The Crown creator Peter Morgan confirmed Corrin’s casting in a press release.
“Emma is a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer,” Morgan said. “As well as having the innocence and beauty of a young Diana, she also has, in abundance, the range and complexity to portray an extraordinary woman who went from anonymous teenager to becoming the most iconic woman of her generation.”
For her part Corrin said she’s honored to become part of The Crown season 4.
“I have been glued to the show since the first episode and to think I’m now joining this incredibly talented acting family is just surreal,” the young actress said. “Princess Diana was an icon, and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring. To be given the chance to explore her through Peter Morgan’s writing is the most exceptional opportunity, and I will strive to do her justice!”
Before joining The Crown, Corrin had a guest starring role in Grantchester on ITV. She will also lead the cast of the 10-part drama series Pennyworth on Epix. This show will center on the young life of Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
Corrin will also be seen in the film titled Misbehavior. It’s a period and historical drama about a group of women who want to change the Miss World beauty contest in 1970.
Meanwhile, it will be awhile before viewers can see Corrin in The Crown. The third season will likely premiere around fall this year and the fourth season won’t arrive until 2020. The cast has been filming the show back-to-back.
Netflix, however, has not yet confirmed the release dates for the two installments.
