The Crown is preparing to start shooting again next month, with the new cast in place. And now we know who will be taking on the role of former Prime Minister John Major in Series 5 – Jonny Lee… Miller?
Yes, while it’s perhaps surprising to consider Miller as a potential Major (nothing against the man himself, who is a superb actor), the show has found success with its PMs, and it’ll be fascinating to see how he embodies the part.
Series 5 features Imelda Staunton taking over as The Queen, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret. Elizabeth Debicki is playing Princess Diana, which will be key as the show’s timeline is reaching her interview with Martin Bashir and more, so there will be plenty of the usual inspired-by-truth drama. Netflix has yet to announce a date for the new run, and we could be waiting until 2022.
