- These stars star in Season 5 of The Crown
- Casting choice of the Queen causes a lot of trouble
- This is why The Crown fans are upset
Netflix Releases new cast photos for The Crown season 5. The streaming portal shared a series of pictures on Instagram. Among others, the actors of Queen Elizabeth II, her husband Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Lady Diana can be seen. The second slide, which causes a lot of excitement in the comments, is particularly eye-catching.
The Crown: She plays Queen Elizabeth II - and causes trouble
You can see actress Imelda Staunton (66), who embodies Queen Elizabeth II in the new season of The Crown. Series fans are not at all enthusiastic about this choice. "All I see is Dolores Umbridge", writes a follower who seems to speak to many others as well. The comments under the photo are overwhelming.
Imelda Staunton is a very familiar face among "Harry Potter“ fans. The Briton played the role of the hated teacher "Dolores Umbridge" in the book adaptation.
The Crown fans are disappointed
Further, some fans criticize The Crown cast in general. The creators will certainly not let that deter them, because there has been great success in every season so far.
Royals Prince Charles and Lady Diana are portrayed by Dominic West (53) and Elizabeth Debicki (32) as season 5 of The Crown takes place in the 1990s. Above all, the deteriorating relationship between Charles and Diana is portrayed, as well as the unfaithfulness of Prince Philip to Queen Elizabeth.
We'll soon find out how Imelda Staunton, aka "Dolores Umbridge", is doing in The Crown, and whether fans can still make friends with the new Queen. The series' fifth season premieres on Netflix on November 9th.
