Emma Corrin and Josh O’Connor Researched This Before The Crown

And although Corrin goes on to credit their co-star for getting them through those tough moments during filming, O’ Connor praised his on-screen love interest for their self-awareness.

“Emma has a natural wisdom,” O’Connor told the outlet. “They understand the pressures associated with being in the public eye better than anyone I know, including people who’ve been in the public eye for many years.”

It’s worth noting that for their portrayals, both Corrin and O’ Connor have snagged countless awards respectively. For their individual roles as the royal couple, both O’Connor, 31, and Corrin, 25, each won a Golden Globe award, and Screen Actors Guild award, and both have been nominated for a Primetime Emmy.
