Following the success of The Crown’s fourth series, attention is now turning to who’ll be taking on the roles of key public figures in the 1990s when the royal drama returns to Netflix.
Andrew Scott Is Tipped To Play Tony Blair In The Crown And No One Knows Quite What To Think
So far, we already know that Imelda Staunton will be taking over from Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, with Jonathan Pryce and Elizabeth Debicki also confirmed to be among the new batch of royals.
Well, it’s now been reported that bosses have found their star to play former prime minister Tony Blair – and he’ll be a very familiar face to anyone who watched Fleabag.
Yes, The Sun is reporting that Andrew “Hot Priest” Scott has been approached to appear as the former Labour leader.They pointed out that Andrew is now a year older than Blair was when he entered Downing Street in 1997, and suggested that he’ll be a key player in the drama’s sixth and final series, which will see the PM and the Queen disagreeing after the death of Princess Diana.

Netflix had no comment when contacted by HuffPost UK. We have also contacted Andrew Scott’s representatives for additional comment.As well as his aforementioned role in Fleabag, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination, Andrew also played Moriarty in Sherlock and had a major role in the James Bond film Spectre.
The Irish Actor has actually shared the screen with Imelda Staunton before, in the Bafta-nominated film Pride.
Pride also featured Dominic West, who has been heavily rumoured to be taking over the role of Prince Charles from Josh O’Connor.READ MORE:Joanna Lumley Hits Out At 'Ghastly' The Crown: 'Lots Of People Don't Know It's Made Up'The Crown Star Josh O'Connor 'Delighted' After Prince Harry Speaks Out About The ShowOlivia Colman's Reaction To Emma Corrin's Golden Globes Win Was Adorable And So Olivia Colman
