Emma Corrin Is Ready to Leave “Posh English” Roles Behind After Playing Princess Diana

Most people will know actress Emma Corrin from her role as Princess Diana in Season 4 of The Crown. However, the show’s standout star is ready to move on after portraying the world famous royal.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Corrin opened up about what she hopes to do now that she’s left The Crown behind. “Though I’m sad I only did one series, I always knew that was all I was signing on for, and I played [Princess Diana] from 16 to 28. I took her from girl to woman, and I loved that arc,” Corrin revealed. “But I’m also quite pleased to move on. The industry loves to pigeonhole. The sooner I can move away from doing posh English, the better, even though that’s what I am.”

As for what her future roles might entail, Corrin said, “I want to do a gritty, independent film, maybe in Scotland or something. I’ll have an outrageous accent, and flowing red hair.”

The actress also revealed that she’s keen to start writing and producing her own roles, citing Reese Witherspoon as an inspiration. “I met a producer at a festival last year, and she said: you will find as you get older that there might not be parts; there aren’t always roles for women out there that are any good.” Corrin continued, “I don’t think I will ever stop feeling that way: we’ve all grown up in the culture, it infiltrates your subconscious. But it makes me angry, and I do whatever I can to resist changing anything about myself for the satisfaction of other people.”
