Fans have had the chance to go behind the scenes for The Crown season 3. The four leads excite us with what to expect in this next stage of the story.
The wait has definitely not been easy but it’s almost over. The Crown season 3 will premiere in just three months. Before that happens, the cast takes fans behind the scenes, teasing what’s to come in the new season.
This is certainly a season of change, and I’m not just talking about the cast. Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies, who are taking over from Claire Foy and Matt Smith as Elizabeth and Philip, share that this season will see a stronger marriage. The previous two seasons have been about them personally and trying to figure out what’s next for them. We won’t get that as much this season.
Instead, it’s going to be outside challenges. Neither shared any details on what those challenges would be, but can I just say that I’m excited to see this new part of their journey. We can see that now Elizabeth and Philip are happy together, so it’s good to finally get to that point in the show.
“Our marriage is more settled. It’s less about the dramas of where their marriage is at, which was a big part of seasons 1 and 2,” Tobias Menzies says. Colman backed him up, confirming that, “it’s more external forces that are bothersome.”
Menzies also shared that there would be more exploration into Philip and who he is. The Crown Season 3, Episode 7 will be set in 1969 and focus on the moon landing. That gives us an idea of how much time is going to pass throughout this season since we’re starting around 1964.
Colman also has praise for the voice department:
“You realize that every syllable and every world, you’ve got it wrong.”
As for Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Daniels, who are taking over from Vanessa Kirby and Matthew Goode, talked about their time together acting out the scenes. It sounds like they’ve had the perfect working relationship. Daniels shared that the nature of the scenes would have some actors pulling back, but that was never the case between him and his co-star.
“There have been scenes where we’ve had to tear each other apart, really, and you can go along…some actors you can’t. Some actors pull back, but neither of us do,” Daniels explained. Carter had the best follow-up, “I think we both felt very safe.”
We know that Margaret and Tony will go through their marital problems this season, problems that started to come up at the end of The Crown season 2. The meaty script certainly sounds like it’s going to do this part justice.
