The star, who has taken over the role of Claire Foy, said: & I don't really like research. But for that I have to accept it. I can't just sit like me, I have to sit like her and look like pictures of her.
& # 39; They taught me how to walk – I am really horrible about that, I have no physical consciousness. I am a bit like a farmer, said one of the directors. & # 39;
While controlling the Queen's accent, she said: & I thought General "chic" would do it, but apparently not. Really unusual vowel sounds. If you say "yes", you say "ears". It's fun to do, right? Very hard to stop. Ears. & # 39;
She was paid just as much as her co-star Tobias Menzies, who takes over the role of Prince Philip from Matt Smith, and said: & I really hope so! It's not called Philip, it's called The Crown! & # 39;

The Hot Fuzz actress has seen her star rise dramatically this year thanks to her Oscar-winning role as Queen Anne in The Favorite.
Olivia admitted that she never expected that she would win, and that her Academy Award is highly valued in her home.
She said: & # 39; I can't register that it happened! It is crazy! It's in our living room, on the dresser, and we keep smiling. It looks fake, it's so shiny. And it's really tough! I could do some great weightlifting. & # 39;
Olivia added that she believed Glenn Close would win the prize for The Wife and said, "She was right in the middle and was wearing gold, so I thought she needed to know something."
The star also discussed how her life has changed since she was catapulted into the Hollywood A list and said: & I am very shy and private. I find it very, very difficult to stare at. I'm not going out! I think that it dissolves.

& # 39; I spoke to a friend of mine who is a therapist and I said: & # 39; It's fine, I'm just not leaving the house anymore. & # 39; As soon as I said it out loud, I realized it sounded strange. It is not what you expect, the other side of it. & # 39;
The star also gave her thoughts about the Me Too and Time & # 39; s Up movements against sexual harassment and sexual abuse.
She said: & # 39; I am very happy that it is happening, and I hope it won't lose any momentum and people won't get bored.
& # 39; People are so used to the norm, and they don't want the boat to rock – if you put your head above the parapet, you can be seen as difficult. And if a woman is seen as difficult, people don't use them. Deeply unfair … & # 39;

In the third season of The Crown, a new guard sees Downing Street enter, while Queen Elizabeth and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain.

The Crown, written by Peter Morgan, also plays Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Josh O & Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.
The Crown season 3 is launched worldwide on Sunday, November 17.
