The Crown season 3 spoilers: Is Helena Bonham Carter playing Princess Margaret?

Posted January 06, 2018

After years of fantastic film performances (and a few scattered television mini-series), Oscar-nominated actor Helena Bonham Carter might be ready to make a bigger TV commitment, as she is in talks with streaming giant Netflix to join its historical drama The Crown as Princess Margaret.

If the critical raves surrounding the first two seasons of The Crown weren't enough to get you to watch, maybe the casting of Helena Bonham Carter will.

Bonham Carter is no stranger to playing a royal; she's portrayed the Queen Mother in The King's Speech, 16th-century queen Lady Jane Grey, and Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn on-screen-not to mention Alice in Wonderland's Red Queen.

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.

Claire Foy has played the Queen for the first two seasons, and earned an Emmy nomination as best actress for her work.

It will also introduce audiences to Camilla Shand, who met Prince Charles at polo match in 1971; the couple dated until Charles left for a naval posting in 1973.

The Crown season 3 will pick up sometime in the 1970s, reportedly spanning Queen Elizabeth II's reign from about 1971 to 1979.

Just think what kind of a country we'd be living in if the Queen had suffered a tragic accident before having the kids and Margaret had become queen. "I was so desperate to do further on. because it's going to be so fun [to enact] when their marriage starts to break down". 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.

Lord knows she can already hold a cigarette like Margaret.
