Perfect Pearls and Coifed Curls: See the First Image of The Crown's New Queen Olivia Colman
Claire Foy has officially handed her crown off to Olivia Colman
We finally have a first look at the makeover of The Crown‘s main monarch.
On Monday, The Crown’s Twitter account shared a photo of Colman in character for the first time with the caption “Patience.” In a pink suit and a set of pearls, with coifed hair and a cup of tea, Colman officially kicked off her time on the hit Neftlix series.
In an interview with emmy magazine last year, Foy revealed that she has spoken to Colman a few times since she was cast.
“It’s not mine anymore,” she said of the role, stating that she’s keeping her opinions to herself. “It’s someone else’s.”
But she did share one piece of advice: “Make sure you take care of yourself and don’t get too tired.”
The Crown, which tracks the Queen’s ascension to and tenure atop the monarchy, recently nabbed 13 Emmy nominations — including one for outstanding drama series and nods for Foy, Kirby, Matt Smith, and Matthew Goode. The nominations brought Netflix’s 2018 total to 112.
