The fact of the matter is – no one gets to play the Queen herself every day, no one except the One. Claire Foy had not only proven herself as the most deserved actor on the planet for portraying the Queen of the British Commonwealth on-screen, she also has undertaken an arduous journey to reach the zenith of such critically acclaimed actresses. The undisputed “hero” of many of her works, Claire Foy is known for her vivid character portrayals and her English descent and accent is more than enough to add the necessary charm to her performances.
With some astoundingly big projects she’s currently working on, including Damien Chazelle’s ‘First Man’, wherein she’ll play Neil Armstrong’s first wife and ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ which is a reboot of the ‘Millennium’ series with Foy assuming the role of the protagonist Lisbeth Salander, Claire Foy’s career seemingly is on a full upswing.
After her successful stint at the two seasons of Netflix’s ‘The Crown’, which garnered rave reviews and popular acclaim for the production design, costume design and more notably the performances, Foy accomplished yet another feat by bagging the Golden Globe and Screen Actor’s Guild Award for her role as Princess and then the Queen Elizabeth II. One of the lesser-known or rather, lesser-noticed facts about Claire Foy’s works is also that she’s mostly featured in biographies throughout her career, either in a leading or a supporting role.
With her fearless demeanour and her looks to die for, Claire Foy continues to amaze us in many ways, and the thrill of seeing her as the Queen earns her even the more respect and an imminent stardom. By the means of this list, we have brought you some of her top performances which impressed and mesmerised us all over.
