Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in ‘The Crown’ season 3

Helena Bonham Carter has been tapped to play Princess Margaret in Season 3 of Netflix’s “The Crown.”

Netflix recently announced that Olivia Colman would be replacing Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth in Seasons 3 and 4 of the show. Vanessa Kirby played Margaret in the past two seasons of the show.

Series creator Peter Morgan has previously said he intended to replace key cast members in later seasons to better portray the main characters as they age.

Seasons 3 and 4 have not been officially ordered, but early production is said to be underway.

Bonham Carter can be seen next in “Ocean’s Eight.” She is repped by WME and Conway van Gelder Grant.
