Last month, Claire Foy, who played Queen Elizabeth throughout the show's first two seasons, spoke to Jimmy Fallon about the cast's transition.

Bonham Carter made a career out of playing rebels, royals, and corset queens back in her Merchant Ivory days, and this role represents a ideal opportunity to roll all three character types into one famously magnetic woman.

Not that we'd anxiously awaiting that moment for two seasons or anything.
