CROWN STAR EMMA CORRIN SLAMS FICTION WARNING CALLS
The Crown actress Emma Corrin has branded calls to specifically label the Netflix show as fiction as “mad.”
The star, who plays Princess Diana in the fourth series of the streaming show, insisted adding a disclaimer to the programme – which is fiction, based on factual Royals – would do “a disservice to creativity, and imagination, and screenwriting, and scriptwriting.”
Emma, 25, has now insisted to The Daily Beast: “The Crown is accurate insofar as it’s about a family over a period of time, and we have factual information about what happened to the country—and to the family.
“We can know that Diana and Camilla went to a restaurant called Menage A Trois, which is hysterically ironic, but it happened, but we obviously don’t know what was said, so that is fiction. But that’s how a lot of series operate.
“It’s mad that they want to label it as “fiction” when you have Diana: In Her Own Words where she talks about everything, and it’s much more harrowing.”
