Netflix’s “The Crown,” which tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II over the decades, will address Princess Diana’s struggle with bulimia as a young woman, years before she decided to speak openly about her condition.
The actor set to play the beloved royal, Emma Corrin, opened up about the challenging nature of the material in a recent interview with USA Today.
“(Princess Diana) was very candid about (her eating disorder), which I think is incredibly progressive of her at that time,” Corrin, 24, told the paper. “Obviously, it’s something we’re talking about now, but even now if someone comes out and says that is something they’ve dealt with, it’s a big deal. … I knew that it was central to her experience, and I wanted to do that justice.”
