The second season premiered December 8 on Netflix.

"You can't ask someone to act middle-aged". She would star alongside Olivia Colman, replacing Claire Foy as Elizabeth. Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it. "That informs everything we do".

The Evening Standard reported rumblings that the Harry Potter actress might take on the role of the bohemian, fashion-forward Princess Margaret, now played by Vanessa Kirby, as the show's events move on from the early lives of Queen Elizabeth II and her family. Bonham Carter made a career out of playing rebels, royals, and corset queens back in her Merchant Ivory days, and this role represents a flawless opportunity to roll all three character types into one famously magnetic woman.

Series creator Peter Morgan reportedly has a six-season plan in place that involves new actors joining the cast every two seasons to play older versions of the characters. In it, Margaret married Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Earl of Snowdon (Matthew Goode) and the season ended with her pregnant with one of their children.

Texans GM Rick Smith to take leave of absence
All of the focus surrounding the Houston Texans to close out the 2017 season has been on the field. There's some uncertainty as it relates to head coach Bill O'Brien and general manager Rick Smith.

"What's so handsome about Claire is her youth", he told Variety ahead of the season one premiere.

This isn't the first time Bonham Carter has starred in a regal role - the Harry Potter actress also played Princess Margaret's mother, the original Queen Elizabeth (also known as the Queen Mother) in the Academy Award winning film, The King's Speech.

One of the dreamiest side effects of The Crown is how it's introduced royal neophytes to the force of nature that was Princess Margaret. Kirby told BAZAAR.com she relished playing Margaret's "dark nights of the soul" in Season 2, and we're sure to see more of that from Margaret in coming episodes.
