The Crown's Claire Foy has given her blessing to Olivia Colman, as the Peep Show actress prepares to take over the role of The Queen in the hit Netflix drama.

Peter Morgan, the creator of the series, had always planned for his principal actors be the same age as the characters during a certain period of the show to provide a certain level of authenticity.

"The Crown", has roped in British actress, #Olivia Colman for, to the join the seasons 3 and 4.

"What's so handsome about Claire is her youth", he told Variety prior to the show's debut in 2016. The first season focused on Queen Elizabeth's unexpected ascension to the throne following the death of her father while on a safari trip in Kenya with her husband. Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it.

Variety confirmed the casting shakeup, announcing that the 43-year-old Colman will take over as the Queen Mother.

But Foy, who has received accolades for her work on the Netflix drama, including a Golden Globe Award, says she wouldn't even think of offering any advice to Colman, who has won praise as well for "Broadchurch" and "The Night Manager".

This will not be Colman's first time to portray royalty.

The series tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. In the 2012 "Hyde Park on Hudson", she was also cast as Queen. There is still no word about his replacement.

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, the upcoming seasons of "The Crown" are set to portray the how the Queen's life went through in decades.
