Exploring ‘The Crown’ Season 6, Part 2 Cast

Exploring ‘The Crown’ Season 6, Part 2 Cast: “The Crown” has concluded its run with the release of the final six episodes on Netflix on December 14.
Crafted by Peter Morgan, the Emmy-winning series provides a fictionalized portrayal of the life and reign of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. Season 6 is anticipated to delve into significant royal events spanning from 1997 to 2005, as stated by Netflix.

In Part 1, “The Crown” depicted the concluding days and the demise of Princess Diana. Part 2 of Season 6 takes a different trajectory, moving into the new millennium to spotlight more uplifting moments within the British royal family. This includes the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, King Charles III and Camilla’s wedding, and the blossoming university romance between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Imelda Staunton, Jonathan Pryce, Dominic West, Olivia Williams, and Elizabeth Debicki lead the cast, along with Ed McVey, Meg Bellamy, and Luther Ford.

“It’s a somber topic, and the series appropriately adopts a melancholic tone to align with funeral black. Its exploration and portrayal of Diana’s death can be morbid, occasionally delving into gratuitous detail, and at other times, it may feel achingly dull and slow,” remarked Lawler in her review. “Despite this, it holds your attention, primarily due to its meticulous recreation of the spectacle that profoundly marked Diana’s life and death.”

Imelda Staunton portrays Queen Elizabeth II

Imelda Staunton reprises her role as the formidable Queen Elizabeth II, navigating the Crown during the 90s.
In discussing her portrayal of the queen, Staunton shared with Netflix’s Tudum that she felt “comfortable” in this role because she has been living with the character for an extended period.

“I love her stillness and her ability to not be thrown by everything that must have constantly—throughout her whole life—gone on around her,” Staunton expressed about the queen.

Dominic West as Charles

British actor Dominic West takes on the role of the newly divorced Prince of Wales in Season 6 of “The Crown.”
Known for his work in “The Wire,” West shared with Tudum that he often found himself “always trying to fight Charles’ corner” and “present him in a good light.”

“I really like him, and I really admire him, and I genuinely think he’s a good guy who I think gets a lot of stick, and I didn’t want to add to that,” West commented about his character.

Jonathan Pryce portrays Prince Philip

Pryce takes on the role of the Queen’s husband and the Duke of Edinburgh in the series. In her Season 5 review of “The Crown,” Lawler noted that the new actors either opted for straightforward impersonations or, in the case of Pryce, made choices “that don’t resemble the former actors in their roles, creating the impression that they’re acting in different shows.”

Lawler further remarked that “some of the actors (including Pryce) are woefully miscast.”

Olivia Williams portrays Camilla

Williams takes on the role of Camilla Parker Bowles, Charles’ love interest, and the future Queen Consort of England.

Elizabeth Debicki portrays Diana

Debicki reprises her role as Diana, Princess of Wales, who is navigating life after her divorce from Charles. In Part 1 of Season 6, the focus is predominantly on Diana and the events leading up to her, with Lawler noting in her review that Part 1 is “Debicki’s show, and everyone else is just along for the ride.”

“The actress rises to the occasion, infusing her portrayal of the People’s Princess with a slightly airy naïveté but consistently grounding her emotional scenes,” remarked Lawler about Debicki’s performance in the season.

Debicki mentioned being seven years old when Diana passed away and recalled watching the funeral with her mother in Australia. The actress shared that her most vivid memory from that time was reflecting on William and Harry and the emotions they must have experienced, having lost their mother at such a young age.

Ed McVey takes on the role of Prince William

Newcomer Ed McVey portrays the young Prince William in Part 2 of Season 6. McVey, who had recently graduated from drama school, secured the role through open auditions for the season.
