Elizabeth Debicki has discussed her upcoming role as Princess Diana in The Crown.
Her casting for seasons five and six (the final ones) was announced last month, with the Australian actress set to take over from Emma Corrin.
In conversation with The Mirror recently, Debicki admitted the prospect "terrified" her.
"It's a dream role," she declared. "She is such a remarkable human being and she really does still live in the hearts of so many people. I'm overwhelmed, I'm terrified and I'm excited. I can't wait to start."
The late princess is an iconic figure across the world, so you can appreciate Debicki's nervousness.
Previously discussing her involvement, the actress stated: "It's my true privilege and my honour to be joining this masterful series, which had me hooked from episode one."
Meanwhile, the 30-year-old can be seen on the big screen in Christopher Nolan's mind-melting actioner Tenet.
She said of her experience on the movie: "I must admit that, going into it, I found it all completely surreal and overwhelming. But as I stepped onto the movie, all of that dropped away because you are made to feel very clear about what it is you are there to make.
"The times when I felt the scope of it all was in the geography we covered shooting the film. We were in so many different countries that it was like being a part of an extremely efficient travelling circus and military base," added Debicki.
"We would just pack everything up in a little cube almost, and then we would open the thing back up in another country. That was when I would really feel the scale of it all. And it was the longest shoot I've ever worked on too."
