Claire Foy is glad her role is over

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

English ac­tor Claire Foy (above) is re­lieved to leave the drama se­ries, The Crown, say­ing that ded­i­cat­ing a long pe­riod of time to play a sin­gle char­ac­ter is a daunt­ing task for an ac­tor.

The 32-year-old, who plays the role of Queen El­iz­a­beth II in the show, is glad it’s over, re­ported The In­de­pen­dent.

“That’s not a shock — we al­ways knew when we signed up to it, and also not to be funny but it’s also a real plus. As an ac­tor there’s noth­ing worse than the sound of ‘seven years’. I’m sure that to some peo­ple, it sounds amaz­ing but to us, it’s like, seven years of play­ing the same per­son? This is a tough job, you know? It’s long, a good nine-mon­ther (work­ing on the show each year). And that’s a lot of your life that you sign over to it,” Foy says.

The show will take a leap in the lives of Queen El­iz­a­beth II and Prince Philip, where he co-star Matt Smith will be re­cast in­stead of ar­ti­fi­cially age­ing them us­ing pros­thet­ics or CGI. Foy adds that she will miss be­ing on the show and says, “I’ll miss it ter­ri­bly. But I just can’t wait to see where it goes.” The sec­ond sea­son of the show is ex­pected to be­gin to­wards the end of this year.
