The sixth season in danger? The star of "The Crown" against the beloved series Israel today


Helena Bonham Carter, who played Princess Margaret in seasons 3 and 4 of the show, said that this is no longer a historical drama: "She crashed into the present, she doesn't need to continue" • And what did she say about Prince Harry's autobiographical book?

The star of "The Crown" against the series:

Helena Bonham Carter, who played Princess Margaret in the third and fourth seasons of the drama about the British royal house, claims that the program should be ended now, since it is no longer a historical drama.

• The comedy that proves that sometimes stupidity can be simply genius

• "Blessed with more than 25 successful years": "Dr. Phil" goes off the screen

• With an investment of about NIS 100 million: Keshet revealed the series that will air in 2023

As you remember, the fifth season of the series appeared on Netflix last November, and brought the series to a closer future, where it explored the events of the royal family during the 90s.

This season, Oscar-nominated actress Leslie Manville ("Hidden Threads") steps into Margaret's shoes.

Although Bonham Carter sees no point in continuing the series, it should be noted that "The Crown" is planned to return for a sixth season, which is expected to deal with the royal family in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it is possible that it will reach the present day.

"I have to be careful with my words, but I don't think they should continue any longer," she said in an interview she gave to the British newspaper "The Guardian".

"I am part of it and I love the episodes with my participation, but it is very different now. When 'The Crown' began it was a historical drama, and now it has crashed into the present. But it depends on them."

The star also deflected a question about "Spare," Prince Harry's controversial autobiography, which was recently published.

"I don't really want to contribute to all of this," she answered when asked about the book, which infuriated the royal family and generated a lot of interest around the world.

"It's complex and it's out of context. And I think it's received enough attention."

This is not the first time that Bonham Carter goes against the series in which she plays.

In 2021, she claimed that Netflix should add a caption at the beginning of each episode explaining that it is a fictional historical series.

The last seasons of the successful program were criticized by viewers as well as by relatives and friends of the royal family, due to what was defined as the sensationalization of events that occurred in reality.

The most prominent of these is the toxic way in which the marriage of Princess Diana and Prince (then) Charles was presented.

There is a lot of discussion around the program about the need to frame it as a scripted TV series which exaggerates reality for the purpose of creating interest, drama and plot development.

The actress expressed support for this idea, claiming that "The Crown" and Netflix have a "moral responsibility" to do so.

"It is being dramatized," she previously said in an official podcast dedicated to the series.

"I agree with that very much, because I think we have a moral responsibility to say, 'Wait a minute, guys, this is not a documentary drama. We are making a drama. These are two separate entities.'
