Australian actor Elizabeth Debicki has been cast to play Princess Diana in the final two seasons of Netflix’s big-budget drama The Crown.
Paris-born, Melbourne-raised Debicki was unveiled by the streamer on Twitter on Monday morning with a stylish black and white portrait and a single quote.
“Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one,” Debicki said in the Twitter announcement.
Debicki burst onto screens in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby in 2013 and has since gone on to star in movies in Australia, the US and UK, including Simon Baker’s Breath and Christpher Nolan’s upcoming Tenet. She also starred in the acclaimed Australian series The Kettering Incident.
