The hit show "The Crown" is not entirely factual, as Prince Harry said earlier. Recently, actress Gillian Anderson gave her view on the Duke of Sussex's opinions of the show.

The Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries, or TV Movie was presented on February 28 to Gillian Anderson. Later, the actress spoke to reporters in the press room.

An interviewer asked Anderson about Prince Harry's statement during his "The Late Late Show" appearance last week that "The Crown" created by creator Peter Morgan isn't entirely fact-based.

"I would say that, you know, Harry is fairly well-qualified to judge what is fact or fiction," said Anderson, who plays Margaret Thatcher during the fourth season of the Netflix show.

The actress found it fulfilling to hear that the duke understood Morgan's message since he was expressing the difficulty of balancing work and family responsibilities.

Anderson went on to say that she enjoyed being on the outside and the inside of such an important show, hearing about this topic being put to rest. That is one thing to hope for, she said.

Anderson also told reporters that she has yet to hear from any of the rest of the royal family regarding the highly praised series. She guessed they don't really speak out on the matter.

Among other things, Anderson said that she spends a very long time on a voice, like Thatcher's.



According to an E! News interview released before the 2021 Golden Globes ceremony, the actress stated that acting as the late British prime minister brought its own set of challenges. 

Among other things, Anderson said that she spends a very long time on a voice, like Thatcher's. Then she pairs it up with movements and mannerisms, so the character looks exactly like on screen.


Meanwhile, Anderson previously won the Golden Globe for the role of Agent Dana Scully on the series "The X-Files" in 1997. Her role on the show also brought her international recognition.

"The Crown" had already picked up Best Television Series - Drama, and both lead actor categories for Emma Corrin and Josh O'Conner. It was nominated for six awards during the recent awards show.

Anderson, who has supported many charities, recently added fuel to the rumor mill that she and "The Crown" creator Peter Morgan have reconciled after they called it quits in late 2020. 

Those rumors started spreading in early 2021. According to reports, Morgan is moving in with her in the Czech Republic while filming her new movie, "White Bird: A Wonder Story."
