Netflix changes the lead role every two seasons. This time around, 65-year-old actress Imelda Staunton will play the British monarch. The production decided to hire a more mature actress to better reflect the passage of time on “The Crown.”

“First look at the new Queen Elizabeth II, Imelda Staunton,” Netflix wrote in a post with a photo of the actress.

Fans of stories about Elizabeth II and the fate of the royal family soon became acquainted with Dolores Umbridge in her series of films about the adventures of Harry Potter. “After all, she’s not in a pink suit” – one fan commented and recalled that the character Imelda Staunton from the J.K. Rowling story was wearing pink.

There are more changes in the cast. Not only the main role has changed, but also the actors who play the members of the royal family. Jonathan Pryce plays Prince Philip, while Dominic West plays Prince Charles. Leslie Manville will play Princess Margaret, and Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana Spencer.
