(LONDON) — Elizabeth Debicki, who was a gold-skinned villainess in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and who will be seen next in Christopher Nolan’s oft-delated Tenet, will play Princess Diana in the fifth and sixth season of Netflix’s The Crown.

“Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one,” Debicki said in the Twitter announcement posted on Sunday afternoon.

The hit Netflix series has followed the royal family through several time periods, using different actors to play its characters as the show spans from the 1940s to the 1980s.

Princess Diana will be introduced in the upcoming fourth season with actor Emma Corrin; X-Files veteran Gillian Anderson will play Margaret Thatcher in  the fourth season as well. That season will debut later this year.

With season five filming in June 2021, cameras won’t begin rolling on the sixth and final season until 2022.
