1st photo of Colman as Queen Elizabeth in 'The Crown'

‘The Crown’: First Image Revealed Of Olivia Colman As Queen Elizabeth II

In the image released, Colman is seen drinking a cup of tea lost in deep thought as she channels her inner Queen.

It is not yet known how much of the Queen's life she will cover, or who may take over from her should further seasons be confirmed. Variety shared the photo from Netflix of Colman in full hair and makeup as the queen announcing that production is underway for the next installment of The Crown (likely airing in early 2019).

Delighted at her casting, Olivia said at the time: "I'm so thrilled to be part of The Crown. The only thing I can guarantee is that I'll be shorter than Vanessa", she said. New Duke of Edinburgh was Tobias Menzies, which were still to be seen in another cult film "Game of thrones". "We've spoken and I just think she's just the most extraordinary actress".

The images come after the show has just received 13 Emmy nominations including one for Foy in her role as young Elizabeth.

The first series of The Crown was one of the most critically acclaimed dramas of 2016 - winning two Golden Globes and two SAG awards, and being nominated for four BAFTAs.

Tobias Menzies of Outlander will play Colman's counterpart, Prince Philip in the third and fourth season, and once again is the ideal casting choice to play this titular character. Camilla Parker Bowles, the current wife of Prince Charles, will be introduced as a character this season, as will Charles' first wife, the late Princess Diana.

We are also expected to meet new characters. Colman, 44, is replacing Claire Foy in "The Crown" as the queen gets older ― for Season 3 and Season 4.
