Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in 'The Crown'

Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in 'The Crown'

After years of fantastic film performances (and a few scattered television mini-series), Oscar-nominated actor Helena Bonham Carter might be ready to make a bigger TV commitment, as she is in talks with streaming giant Netflix to join its historical drama The Crown as Princess Margaret.

Last month, Claire Foy, who played Queen Elizabeth throughout the show's first two seasons, spoke to Jimmy Fallon about the cast's transition.

While Carter's reported casting has certainly excited fans, it looks like we'll still have to wait a little while longer to find out if she has indeed landed the royal role. The Netflix show has already announced that British actress Olivia Colman will play Queen Elizabeth II. Now, it seems that Helena Bonham Carter is tipped to take over the role as Princess Margaret. Bonham Carter knows how to play misfits, outsiders, and posh upper-crust dwellers-and a multi-episode arc as Princess Margaret would surely be one of her juiciest roles to date.

The Crown's first two seasons followed her complicated love life and eventual marriage to photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones.

There is now no word on who will replace Matt Smith as Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Phillip, but personally we can't wait to see these two tearing it up inside Kensington Palace as royal sisters.

If you've finished binge-watching the second season of The Crown on Netflix, you're probably wondering when the third season will arrive.

Bonham Carter has plenty of interesting material to work with for Season 3, which will likely take place from the end of the 1960s to the end of the '70s.

"You'll be like, 'Who are they?' We're the warm-up act", she said on The Tonight Show.
