Emma Always Knew She Wanted To Be An Actress
Emma Corrin was born in Royal Tunbridge Wells, England and attended the Roman Catholic Woldingham School in Surrey, which was an all-girls boarding school. That’s where the future Netflix star developed her interests in acting and dance. During her gap year, she took a Shakespeare course at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
She Watched Prince William And Kate Middleton’s 2011 Royal Wedding

Emma knows that there is a lot of pressure on her to get her role on The Crown right, as she wants to give Princess Diana the justice that she deserves. “I feel a lot of responsibility,” she said, according to Interview Magazine. “I try not to think much about it.

She feels Sympathetic Towards Prince Charles And Princess Diana And Their Marriage
Emma told Harper Bazaar Magazine in an interview, “I think people forget that his marriage with Diana might have not been good. I think there were mistakes made on both sides, but Charles loved one woman, basically, his whole life, which is better than most men, to be honest.”
She Is A Huge Fan Of Princess Diana’s Style
Emma told Harper’s Bazaar, “I really loved some of her earlier jumpers. The sheep jumper that she wore and the pink one. Those are so iconically hers. And that always really helps. Also, there was an outfit later on when I think we receive Hugh Lindsay’s body back from the avalanche incident, and I’m wearing this YSL black bomber jacket. I was just like, ‘If I had this, I would be wearing it the entire time.’”
