The Netflix hit The Crown is heading into its fifth season. As in the previous season, this new one will focus heavily on Princess Diana.

Among other things, The Crown is expected to cover Diana's relationship with the heart surgeon Hasnat Khan, who has been called her "great love."

The Crown: Humayun Saeed as Diana's lover Hasnat Khan

On The Crown, Diana's lover will be played by the Pakistani actor Humayun Saeed, as Variety reported.

A confirmation from Netflix is still pending, but actress Mahira Khan revealed in a tweet that Saeed, 50, will be part of the series. So he'll join the stars playing Diana, Charles, and co. in season 5.

Humayun Saeed: The new Crown actor is so popular

Humayun Saeed is a real eye-catcher. The actor is especially well-known in his homeland of Pakistan.

He also cuts a fine figure on his Instagram page. His 5.2 million followers (as of January 2022) are always blown away by his photos.

On social media, Saeed regularly shares insights into his life as an actor, but more personal photos aren't neglected either.

To date, Saeed has appeared primarily in Pakistani films and TV series, so his move to The Crown will introduce him to a whole new audience.

Watch for the star as Hasnat Khan when The Crown season 5 drops this November.
