When the new casting was announced, Olivia said in a statement, “I'm so thrilled to be part of The Crown. I was utterly gripped watching it. I think Claire Foy is an absolute genius. She's an incredibly hard act to follow. I'm basically going to re-watch every episode and copy her.”
Claire approved of Olivia as her replacement. “I just love her. I admire her so much and the idea that we sort of will be doing the same job but not actually working together is just enough, I'm honored by that,” she said.
