Netflix series ‘The Crown’ to pause filming out of respect for late Queen Elizabeth II
Peter Morgan, the maker of the famous Netflix series ‘The Crown’ has announced to stop filming the upcoming season of the series out of respect for the late Queen.
After the demise of the Queen, the writer of the period drama wrote, ” “The Crown is a love letter to her and I’ve nothing to add, for now, just silence and respect. I expect we will stop filming out of respect too”.
The Crown’s makers did have a strategy in place for how to handle the monarch’s passing, director Stephen Daldry revealed in an interview with the same journal in 2016, just before the show’s premiere. He said, “None of us knows when that time will come but it would be right and proper to show respect to the Queen. It would be a simple tribute and a mark of respect. She’s a global figure and it’s what we should do”.
Imelda Staunton will play the Queen in The Crown’s sixth season and, if it ever goes into production, final seasons. The previous four seasons of The Crown starred Claire Foy and Olivia Colman as the monarch. The show has received a lot of praise from critics and numerous awards throughout the course of its four seasons on the streaming platform so far.
The show focuses on the political rivalries, courtships, and historical events that formed the second half of the 20th century.
