Claire Foy happy to leave 'The Crown'

The second season of ‘The Crown’ is expected to hit Netflix in November.

Claire Foy said that she is relieved to leave 'The Crown' as she feels dedicating a long period of time to play a single character is a daunting task for an actor. The 32-year-old actor, who essays the role of Queen Elizabeth II in the TV series, said she knew what she had signed up for and is glad that it is over, reported The Independent.

"That's not a shock. We always knew when we signed up to it, and also not to be funny but it's also a real plus. As an actor there's nothing worse than the sound of 'seven years'. "I'm sure, to some people it sounds amazing but to us it's like, seven years of playing the same person? And this is a tough job, you know? It's long, a good nine-monther. And that's a lot of your life that you sign over to it," Foy said.

The show will take a leap in the lives of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, where her co-star Matt Smith will be recast instead of artificially ageing them using prosthetics or CGI. Foy adds that she will miss being on the show and says, "I'm going to miss it terribly. But I just can't wait to see where it goes, I just can't wait."
