The Crown’s Emma Corrin Was Hospitalised After Filming This Scene Of The Hit TV Series
Talk about dedication
If you spent 90% of your day yesterday glued to your sofa binging on the latest series of hit Netflix series The Crown, you’re absolutely not alone.
Series four of the show focuses on two iconic women, Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher. One of the most-loved members of the monarchy in history, Princess Diana, is played by English actress Emma Corrin, and while fans of the show are in awe of her acurate portrayal, Emma recently revealed the lengths she went to to get the perfect scene.
In an interview with Glamour, Emma said that episode where she co-star Josh O’Connor, who plays the role of Prince Charles, recreated Charles and Diana’s 1983 trip to Australia left her hospitalised.
Telling the story of how exactly she ended up there, Emma said:
“I’m asthmatic and had been ill for a while with a cough. I had to film a scene in a freezing-cold swimming pool. It was the hardest scene to film because I was genuinely keeping myself alive treading water.”
Going on to say that things soon escalated shortly after filming the scene, Emma continued:
“We were meant to be flying back that night to the UK and went past a hospital to get antibiotics.”
“The doctors gave me an oxygen test and said, ‘We can’t let you go because your oxygen levels are so low,’ so I was hospitalised.”
Thankfully, Emma quickly made a full recovery and was able to continue filming for the series.
You can stream all 10 episodes of series four now on Netflix.
