TALK OF THE TOWN: Claire Foy, 37, ‘is not interested in aristocratic people’ despite her two huge royal roles
So I was surprised to learn that Claire Foy is ‘not interested in aristocratic people’.
The 37-year-old, celebrate for her role as Her Majesty, also revealed she was reluctant to play another blue-blood so soon after finishing her stint in The Crown.
I was surprised to learn that Claire Foy, who played the Queen in The Crown and most recently Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, in A Very British Scandal, is ‘not interested in aristocratic people’
‘I was a bit “Oh no” about that,’ she tells Soho House magazine, House Notes.
‘I had to really think about it. I wasn’t expecting a part like that to come along so quickly after playing the Queen, although really it wasn’t quick – it was five years.
‘This sounds awful, but I’m not interested in aristocratic people. I’m interested in people.’

TV presenter Alice Beer
Romesh Ranganathan, you are the weakest link… goodbye.
That’s the verdict of TV presenter Alice Beer, right, who thinks Romesh is just too nice on the popular quiz show and that it needs the withering put-downs of former star Anne Robinson.
Alice, who worked with Anne on consumer show Watchdog, told me at the Cirque du Soleil Luzia premiere that the Queen of Mean’s caustic verdicts were what made The Weakest Link so successful.
She adds: ‘Now you can’t say anything – you have to put nice people on TV.’
My lips are sealed, but…
Which super-rich couple with impeccable Royal links couldn’t resist asking for a pair of freebie tickets for the new Cirque du Soleil show in London last week? No wonder they’re so wealthy!
