Gillian Anderson Has Been Cast As Margaret Thatcher In 'The Crown'

Gillian Anderson, who is definitely one of the best actresses out there, is taking on the role of an iconic woman in the fourth season of The Crown.

She will be playing Margaret Thatcher.

We haven't even gotten season 3 yet, but we're super happy to hear this news about the fourth.


So now we can at least come up with theories of what we will see in the fourth season...

What did Anderson have to say about her casting?

Amazon Prime

“I am so excited to be joining the cast and crew of The Crown, and to have the opportunity to portray such a complicated and controversial woman.”

She continued with:


"Thatcher was undoubtedly formidable, but I am relishing exploring beneath the surface, and dare I say, falling in love with the icon, who whether loved or despised, defined an era."

Season 3 comes out November 17 on Netflix.

I am personally, very excited for season 3! Will you be watching the new season?
