Corrin was worried about the responsibility entrusted to her as a difficult and flamboyant heroine.

24-year-old actress Emma Corrin spoke on the Graham Norton Show about her new role ahead of the fourth season of Netflix’s Crown. Emma appeared in the studio with her partner and on-screen husband Josh O’Connor. In the cult seraglio, she will play the favorite of the whole world – Princess Diana.

“There was a lot of pressure because she was so adored and people felt that she was ‘their’, as if they personally knew her,” said Corrin.

The heroine of Diana will be the first leading role of Emma, ​​which was not widely known before. As part of the work on the series, she met the performer of the role of Princess Margaret Helena Bonham Carter and went with her to the theater. The young actress remembered that she felt embarrassed, since everyone literally wanted to touch Helena and pat her on the shoulder, while no one knew what kind of girl next to her was.

Curiously, for her appearance on the show, Emma chose a bold vintage-style mini dress with huge red roses and big black sleeves. According to her, in this way she conveys the sense of style of the 80s for which her heroine was famous.

Emma added that she still does not like being asked about the “cult role”, as she fears that this makes the late Diana “untouchable”, while she was real and close to all subjects.
