The advert for the fourth season of the award-winning royal drama allegedly reads: “We need a mesmerising new young star with extraordinary range,” reports The Telegraph.
“She has to play charming comedy, flirt and social exhibitionist on the world stage, desperate and lonely self-harmer at her lowest ebb and the kind of psychological intensity of Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby.”
The series will focus on Diana and Prince Charles’ courtship and subsequent marriage in 1981, when the late princess was 20.
Diana welcomed Prince William into the world in 1982, before having Prince Harry in ’84. After a tumultuous and unhappy marriage, Diana and Charles announced their divorce in 1996.
