Nevermind! Deadline reports Paul Bettany will not be joining season three of Netflix’s The Crown after all.
The period drama explores the private life of Queen Elizabeth II. Season two stars Claire Foy, Matt Smith, John Lithgow, Victoria Hamilton, Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby, and Dame Eileen Atkins.
As reported earlier, Bettany was in talks to take over the role of Prince Philip in season three of The Crown. However, now it looks like that won’t be the case. So far, Netflix has confirmed that Olivia Colman will play Queen Elizabeth and Helen Bonham Carter will replace Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret for season three.
