The actress who already exudes the same grace and elegance as the late Princess has released an official statement about getting such a massive role, promising to do the royal member proper justice on screen.
‘I have been glued to the show and to think I’m now joining this incredibly talented acting family is surreal. Princess Diana was an icon and her effect on the whole world remains profound and inspiring. To explore her through Peter Morgan’s writing is the most exceptional opportunity and I will strive to do her justice!’ she says.
Corrin is pretty new to the industry since her resume includes one episode of TV series Grantchester as well as an upcoming movie titled Misbehavior in which she plays Miss South Africa.
The film follows a group of women planning to disrupt the London ‘Miss World’ competition in from 1970.
