Claire Foy Is Getting Ready to Say Good-Bye to The Crown

Foy's fellow contenders in the leading actress category include Happy Valley's Sarah Lancashire and Nikki Amuka-Bird, recognised for her work in the BBC's adaptation of Zadie Smith's NW.

We knew the actors were likely to only appear in two seasons of London's favourite Netflix drama, but Foy has confirmed their imminent departure, calling the fleeting nature of her regal role "a real plus". You may also know her from her bewitching performance as the villainous Evelyn Poole on Showtime's Penny Dreadful.

It thrilled fans of the Royal Family with an intimate portrait of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's early life together, and now it seems that Netflix's big-budget production The Crown was worth every penny as the show has been nominated for 5 BAFTA awards.

"That's not a shock - we always knew when we signed up to it, and also not to be amusing but it's also a real plus", she added.

Netflix has invested a staggering £100 million in the show which is now meant to have six series. You may also have seen the 50-year-old actor in Gosford Park, Punch-Drunk Love, Red Dragon, War Horse, Anna Karenina, The Theory Of Everything, and more.

In the comedy categories, The Windsors' Harry Enfield and Steve Coogan are among those up for the male performance award, while Diane Morgan and Lesley Manville are up against Fleabag stars Olivia Colman and Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the female gong. She won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for playing the English monarch.

Foy, 32, was pregnant when she accepted the part of the young Queen.

Netflix's The Crown leads the nominees at this year's Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards.

While this news may have been largely well-reported for a long time now, we've now got further context of the mass exodus of cast members for The Crown season 2.
