On Wednesday, Netflix confirmed that Daniels, whose credits also include Flesh and Bone as well as House of Cards, is going to be coming on board the drama series in the role of Antony Armstrong-Jones. For those unfamiliar as to who he is, Armstrong-Jones is otherwise known as Lord Snowdon, a photographer and filmmaker who was married for a time to Princess Margaret. Armstrong-Jones joins Olivia Colman (Elizabeth), Tobias Menzies (Philip), and Helena Bonham Carter (Margaret) in the latest iteration of the series.
In a statement, Daniels had the following to say about joining the series and his role:
“After being glued to the first two seasons of The Crown I am beyond thrilled to be joining the cast of this incredible piece of television. Snowdon was such a dynamic and complex man, I’m really looking forward to playing him.”
The Crown season 3 is currently slated to launch in 2019, but at the moment there is not a whole lot of other information out there regarding the series. Once we do get a chance to learn a little bit more information on this subject, we will update you. As of right now, though, we do feel confident that The Crown season 3 has assembled a really good cast and we’re excited to see just how they craft this particular chapter in the Royal Family’s life. As we’ve seen over the course of the past several seasons, these are complex people, and finding out how to translate their story to screen is a little harder than you would first think. While they are public figures, they are also so insulated that there is really not all that much known about them.
