The Crown has cast Emerald Fennell as Camilla Parker Bowles.
Fennell will join the third season of Netflix’s hit royal drama, starring as Prince Charles’ love interest. She will play opposite Josh O’Connor, who has been tapped to star as the young Charles. She joins the previously announced Season 3 cast members Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Watkins, and Marion Bailey.
“I’m absolutely over the moon, and completely terrified, to be joining so many hugely talented people on The Crown,” Fennell said. “I absolutely love Camilla, and am very grateful that my teenage years have well prepared me for playing a chain-smoking serial snogger with a pudding bowl haircut.”
Fennel is known for her role on the series Call the Midwife. He other credits include Pan, The Danish Girl, and Anna Karenina. She also serves as head writer on Season 2 of Killing Eve.
Season Three of The Crown is now filming and expected to debut in 2019 on Netflix.
