The Crown Has Found its John F. Kennedy for Season 2

The Crown Has Found its John F. Kennedy for Season 2”

The first season of this prestige project has already won SAG Awards for Claire Foy, who plays the young Queen Elizabeth II, and John Lithgow who embodied the monarch's first prime minister, the redoubtable Sir Winston Churchill. You can probably expect this meeting to be recreated in the show!

He's certainly the first who once played a serial killer for eight seasons.

The Crown season 2, which is now filming, will begin with soldiers in Queen Elizabeth II's Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt.

The Crown has already proved an global hit and saw lead star Claire, 32, bagged a Golden Globe Award for her portrayal. The second season bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s.

Meanwhile, his first lady Jackie Kennedy will be played by South African actress Jodi Balfour.

Hall joins a long list of actors who have portrayed Kennedy on screen - they include Cliff Robertson, William Devane, Martin Sheen, Stephen Collins, Patrick Dempsey, Bruce Greenwood, and Greg Kinnear, while Caspar Phillipson most recently played the late President in Jackie, which starred Natalie Portman as his wife. It notes, too, that this version of J.F.K. "feels unmanned by his wife's popularity". As their affair continues, his bohemian and sexually liberal lifestyle is put at risk by his proximity to the establishment.

The second season of The Crown does not yet have a confirmed launch date on Netflix, though many sources anticipate it will debut this November.
