Helena Bonham Carter Tapped to Play Princess Margaret on 'The Crown'!

Bonham Carter would be a flawless fit for it, and based on what we know about Princess Margaret there is plenty of meaty material to come.

According the the Evening Standard, Helena was rumoured to be eyeing up the role of Queen Liz herself but it seems she was far more suited to play the more risqué Windsor sister.

Even if you live in a cave, you should know that The Crown is about the Royal Family and yes, the costumes are great and Doctor Who is in it, but the biggest, gaudiest, maddest bauble at its bonkers epicentre is Princess Margaret. Carter was previously rumored to be in the running to play Elizabeth, but that lead role ultimately went to Olivia Colman, who will replace Emmy nominee Claire Foy. Bonham Carter is "all but confirmed" to replace actress Vanessa Kirby, who delivered a standout performance this past season as the youngest daughter of King George VI. However, she was phenomenal last time she played a member of the British monarchy.

While Carter's reported casting has certainly excited fans, it looks like we'll still have to wait a little while longer to find out if she has indeed landed the royal role. Bonham Carter is truly a brilliant actress, but after too many turns as wacky Tim Burton characters, we're anxious she could ham this up a bit.

The Crown won't be Bonham Carter's first time joining the royal family onscreen.
