Olivia Colman Receives Emmy Nomination for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in “The Crown”
Wearing a Queen’s crown is a demanding role to fill, but Olivia Colman has met it with incredible aplomb.
The ICM Partners’ client received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown, one of many nominations and awards Colman has received for her performance.
The Academy Award-winning actress recently made headlines upon revealing that she accidentally swore when meeting the real United Kingdom monarch six years ago while attending an event at Windsor Castle.
“I didn’t think she’d be there and suddenly we all ended up in a big queue,” Colman recalled in an interview with The Mirror. “I thought somebody was using the rooms for the bash and then suddenly we looked down the corridor and went ‘oh f**k!’ Apparently, the gaffe was not heard by her Majesty.
Season four marked Colman’s final season in the role, as the Netflix drama changes casts every two seasons to properly reflect the passing of time. She has multiple film projects in pre and post production, including the recently announced big screen adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s novel, The Lost Daughter.
