Claire Elizabeth Foy (April 16, 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 relativly obscure actress, appearing in movies like Season of the Witch and the short-lived BBC revival of Upstairs Downstairs. The Crown (2016) changed all that and she won two Screen Actors Guild awards for her role. She’s also set to play Lisbeth Salander in the movie adaptation of The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

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