She plays the role of Queen Elizabeth II for the third and fourth series of the Netflix drama and takes over the role of Claire Foy.

But one thing that couldn't be transferred from one to the other seems to be her eye color, it was revealed in The Guardian & # 39; s Weekend magazine on Saturday.

To match both the royal and her predecessor, 35, the 45-year-old actress was equipped with blue contact lenses, but director Ben Caron said she had to remove them because it was like she was acting & # 39; behind a mask & # 39; while she wore them.

As he spoke to the publication, he explained: & # 39; It was as if we had taken all her acting power away and put it in a safe and locked it. & # 39;

The filmmaker then tried to give Olivia blue eyes in post-production, but felt that it was meaningless & # 39; and & # 39; seemed to diminish what she was doing & # 39; so they decided to let her keep her brown eyes.

Casting director Nina Gold went on to admit that the team always thought it should be Olivia & # 39; to replace Claire, because they have the same & # 39; quality & # 39; as the star that conveys its humanity in a very simple, clear, non-doing-something kind of way.
