The Crown Casts Johnathan Pryce To Play Prince Philip In Season 5 & 6


The actor, nominated for an Oscar for ‘The Two Popes,’ takes over from Tobias Menzies in the fifth and sixth seasons.

First, it was Matt Smith (in the first two seasons), Tobias Menzies succeeded him (in the third and fourth installments), and now Jonathan Pryce is in charge of giving life to Felipe de Edimburgo in the last two rounds of ‘The Crown.’ 

The actor, who played the High Sparrow in ‘Game of Thrones’ and whom we also saw alongside Anthony Hopkins in ‘The Two Popes,’ for which he earned his first Oscar nomination, joins the already announced cast alongside Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville.

Actress Imelda Staunton (‘Downton Abbey,’ ‘Peter’s friends’) will be in charge of giving life to Queen Elizabeth from England. 

Lesley Manville, a 64-year-old British actress, nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for ‘Phantom Thread’ will replace Helena Bonham-Carter as Princess Margaret, to give life to the monarch’s sister in the final chapters of the series, which will take place in the 80s and 90s of the last century.

Although at first, Netflix assured that the fiction would end in its fifth season, it finally announced the recording of a sixth season to conclude the saga that has portrayed the life of the British Royal Family. 

The first three are available on the platform, and the fourth is expected to arrive before the end of the year, although there is still no confirmed date. To see the outcome of the series, we will have to wait until 2021 since the coronavirus considerably delayed the recordings.
