Get To Know Australian Actress Elizabeth Debicki— She's Officially Playing Princess Diana In "The Crown"

After months of auditions, the long search has finally ended!

It was a casting choice that couldn't have been more spot on.


Just yesterday, Netflix's The Crown announced that it had officially cast Elizabeth Debicki, an Australian actress, to play Diana, Princess of Wales in its last two seasons. The show that's been lauded by critics and fans alike for its razor-sharp accuracy in casting choices has done it yet again by finding a match who not only physically resembles Princess Diana, but is very much capable of capturing, then projecting, her aura onscreen. 



Elizabeth is set to portray Diana at the time of her life when her relationships with the Queen, her husband, and the media were at their most troubled. Tasked with the challenging responsibility of bringing Diana's final years onscreen and imbibing the emotions and thoughts that the young royal had at the time, Elizabeth considers the opportunity to be one she's truly grateful for having. 


Even before the season of The Crown has aired in full (it's expected to release a few episodes later in the year) and way, way before filming for the fifth season has begun, Elizabeth has already been receiving much support from fans. Here's what people had to say:






And really, we couldn't agree more—as if The Crown needed to give us more reasons to fall in love with it.
