Claire Elizabeth Foy (16 April, 1984) is an English actress who's probably best known for playing Queen Elizabeth II on the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown (2016).

Before that however, she was a relatively obscure actress, appearing in movies like Season of the Witch and the short-lived BBC revival of Upstairs Downstairs. (Though fantasy fans may remember her as the intimidating Adora Belle Dearheart in the TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal, and she also registered for some watchers as Anne Boleyn in Wolf Hall.) The Crown (2016) changed all that and she won two Screen Actors Guild awards for her role; she then demonstrated the ability to switch accents as Neil Armstrong's wife Janet in First Man.

And yes, her middle name is Elizabeth. Fans have had fun with this.
