Matt mad at get­ting boot from Crown

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AC­TOR Matt Smith isn’t happy he’s been booted off Netflix hit show The Crown and is still fu­ri­ous at hav­ing to say good­bye.

Matt ( above), 35, played Prince Philip in the pop­u­lar Royal Fam­ily drama but was sent pack­ing af­ter sea­son two be­cause older ac­tors were needed for the third se­ries.

Sea­son three sees the story take a sig­nif­i­cant leap for­ward, mean­ing dif­fer­ent ac­tors will pick up the man­tle.

But Matt said: “I was cut up. I was sad to say good­bye to the crew.

“The pro­duc­tion was just f**king qual­ity. I was sad to say good­bye to wifey (Claire Foy), the old ball and chain.

“I’m bloody pissed off they’re kick­ing us all out, bloody dis­grace­ful. I’d be ly­ing if I said I’m not dis­ap­pointed.”

Olivia Col­man, 43, will be tak­ing over from 33-year-old Claire’s role as Queen El­iz­a­beth II but it hasn’t been an­nounced who’s set to take over Matt’s role as Prince Phillip. THE hu­man heart pumps enough blood in a life­time to fill three su­per­tankers
