Princess Diana makes debut in ‘The Crown
More than two decades after her death, princess Diana’s ill-fated entry into the British royal family is the main storyline in the long-awaited fourth season of the hit Netflix drama “The Crown.”
Emma Corrin, a 24-year-old actress little known until now, immerses herself in the role of the young Diana, capturing her soft voice and timid gaze from under a heavy fringe.
But the actress admitted in an interview with The Sunday Times that she felt a “huge amount of pressure” to pull off the role in the new season, which debuts on Nov. 15.
Diana is shown as a naive teenager who quickly becomes lonely in the role of Prince Charles’ fiancée and rollerskates around Buckingham Palace to pass the time.
Even before their unhappy marriage, she begins cycles of bulimia: Binge-eating and then purging herself of food.
Diana Spencer had just turned 20 when the couple married in 1981, while Charles was 32
