The people behind popular Netflix series The Crown have put out a casting call for the role of Princess Diana.

According to The Sun, show creator Peter Morgan is looking for a “staggeringly talented young actress” to play Diana when she was aged 18-22 in the fourth series.

The advert reads: “We need a mesmerising new young star with extraordinary range.

“She has to play charming comedy, flirt and social exhibitionist on the world stage, desperate and lonely self-harmer at her lowest ebb and the kind of psychological intensity of Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby.”

It’s believed the show’s fourth series will focus on Diana and Prince Charles’ courtship and subsequent marriage in 1981, when the late princess was 20-years-old.

The third series of The Crown is set to hit Netflix in July, and it stars Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, and Helena Bonham-Carter as Princess Margaret.
