Fans are going mad for Gillian Anderson

The full trailer for the fourth series of Netflix hit The Crown has been released, offering fans a first glimpse into Gillian Anderson’s performance as Margaret Thatcher.

Fans are evidently excited to see Anderson, who also starred in The Fall and Sex Education, as the Iron Lady, as her name trended on Twitter following the release of the trailer.

Actress Amy-Leigh Hickman tweeted: “Confirmed. Gillian Anderson can do ANYTHING.”

Author John Hornor-Jacobs encapsulated the mood of many viewers, saying: “Gillian Anderson as Thatcher gives me diametrically opposed physical reactions. I am very confused.”

Olivia Colman will continue to play the role of Queen Elizabeth II in the show, which will depict the Thatcher years of the 1980s. It will be Colman’s last outing as Queen Elizabeth II, with Imelda Staunton set to replace her for the fifth and sixth series of the show.

The Crown season four will be available to stream on Netflix on 15 November.
