Helen Mirren rules out royal role in Netflix drama The Crown


Helen Mirren says she will not be returning to the role of the Queen for forthcoming Netflix drama The Crown.

She won an Oscar in 2007 for the film The Queen and is currently playing the monarch on Broadway in The Audience.

The Crown, a 10-episode drama set for 2016, is based on the stage play and focuses on the Queen's meetings with her prime ministers over many decades.

But the actress, who originated the role in the West End in 2013, said she was enjoying playing the Queen for US theatregoers in the New York production of The Audience.
