Corrin's character is the young Princess Diana while Debicki will play the older version of the Princess. Despite her short stay on the series, the actress revealed that she worked with a dialect coach to achieve her character's voice.

"PENNYWORTH"

Corrin graduated from college in 2018 then began working at a retail startup in London, where she packed boxes of underwear. One day, her agent called to tell her about the "Pennyworth" audition and Corrin immediately left her job for the tryouts.

HER BIG DEBUT

When Corrin was chosen to join the A-list cast of "The Crown" the director, Benjamin Caron, advised her to channel whatever feelings she experiences due to her new fame into her character as her situation is similar to what Diana experienced.

The series creator, Peter Morgan told sources that Corrin "captivated" them with her audition and also convincingly portrayed a young Diana with her "innocence and beauty" on the series.

According to the 24-year-old, she has been a fan of "The Crown" since its debut but never imagined she could be a part of the story. The actress also described the late Princess Diana as "an icon, whose effect on the world remains profound and inspiring."

Corrin bears an uncanny resemblance to her icon just as her co-star Josh O'Connor resembles Prince Charles. The fourth season of the series will cover Diana's wedding and the difficulties she endured during her marriage to Prince Charles.
