The Crown is said to have found its new Prince Andrew for the final two seasons. The Netflix show is currently filming the fifth run, with Imelda Staunton replacing Olivia Colman in the role of Queen Elizabeth II. While the majority of the show’s new stars have been revealed, it was unknown who would be playing the role of the older Prince Andrew. When he last appeared in the drama, he was in his twenties and played by Tom Byrne.
