Claire Foy has revealed why she needed to “end” her role on The Crown.

Foy, 39, starred as the late Queen Elizabeth II on the hit royal series for the first two seasons before her departure in 2017.

Ahead of her upcoming return for the series final instalment, Foy opened up to People about why she left the show for her “sanity.”

“I’ve got a lot of love for the people who are still doing the show, but for my own sanity, I ended the show when I ended it,” she told the magazine.

“I let it go and moved on and I think that’s quite healthy,” she added.

Foy rose to fame for her role as the late monarch on the series, winning two Emmy awards for her performance.

The actress starred across from Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip, for two seasons before Olivia Colman took over as an aged up Queen Elizabeth for season three.

While Foy called her time on the show the “most extraordinary two-and-a-half years” during her 2018 Emmy acceptance speech, the star spoke candidly at the BFI Radio Times TV Festival in 2017 about being happy about her exit from the series.

“As an actor, there’s nothing worse than the sound of ‘seven years’,” she said.

“I’m sure to some people it sounds amazing but to us, it’s like, seven years of playing the same person? And this is a tough job, you know?” she explained.

“It’s long, a good nine-monther. And that’s a lot of your life that you sign over to it.”

While the actress hung up her crown in 2017, Foy made a surprise return in flashback sequences for the fourth and fifth seasons of the show.

Foy opened up about why she decided to make a cameo in the series while on The Graham Norton Show in January 2023.

The actress spoke about being back on the set of The Crown and her thoughts on Imelda Staunton who currently stars as the Queen for the final fifth and sixth seasons. 

“I went back and did it again because it is a lovely thing to do and I really love Imelda,” she told host Graham Norton.

“I think she is amazing,” Foy added.

The trailer for the upcoming final instalment of the hit series teases Foy is once again returning as the late monarch in flashback sequences for part two of the sixth season.
