Erin Doherty is “in love” with British Princess Anne, whose role she plays in the popular Netflix series The Crown. That‘s what she says to The Daily Mail. The actress admires the “steel” character of the princess, who is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth.
28-year-old Doherty believes that Anne’s character was born because of the lack of a real mother figure in her youth. The role of the media also has to do with this. “Who commented on her since she was sixteen,” says Doherty. “For example, they commented on her body. I find that fascinating and horrible. If such a thing had happened to me, I would have had a breakdown.”
Doherty thinks it is important that young people see and hear the story of Princess Anne, because she is “magnificent”. The actress admits that before she got a role in The Crown, she knew almost nothing about the princess.
The fourth season of the series will be on Netflix from Sunday.
