Foy, 34, talked about playing Queen Elizabeth for two seasons of the hit Netflix show on Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show”.

The actress admits of Colman: “Olivia is loving it, I think, and is having an amazing time.

“I genuinely think that when it starts people will say, ‘Who was it that played it before?'”
