Watch: ‘The Crown’ Stars Hilariously Bust A Move To… Lizzo?

“It was never meant to see the light of day and yet here we are.”



‘The Crown’ is an absolute hit, with the premiere of season 4 on Netflix kicking up both excitement and controversy.


The fourth instalment of the series takes place between 1977 and 1990. This means that the plot was heavily centred around the courtship, marriage and subsequent failure of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana’s relationship. It also introduces viewers to Margaret Thatcher, the “Iron Lady” and Prime Minister of the UK at the time. Now, much of the series is sombre. Sure, there are delicate smatterings of comedic elements throughout the season, but the topics are heavy as – even considering showrunner Peter Morgan’s infamy for taking artistic licence in the past – they are said to contain trace elements of the real lives of the royal family.

With that said, it’s no wonder the reveal of a clip – featuring the cast of ‘The Crown’ – dancing to Lizzo’s hit ‘Good As Hell’, has taken the internet by storm. During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, actress Gillian Anderson (who expertly plays Margaret Thatcher in the show) was asked what lead to the leaked clip, filmed on-set before the coronavirus pandemic while the cast was on a break from a funeral scene.

She says it all started with her costar Olivia Colman – who plays Queen Elizabeth II.


“Olivia apparently does a dance class in the area that she lives with a bunch of friends on a regular basis. The last time she did the class they had danced to that Lizzo song and she asked if we would happen to be interested in doing it. She would video it and then she would just share it only with her friends, the other dancers. So it was never meant to see the light of day and yet here we are.”


In the clip, we see Colman, Tobias Menzies (Prince Philip), Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles), Marion Bailey (Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother), Erin Doherty (Princess Anne), and Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret), among others dancing a routine to the song’s chorus, while decked out in their costumes for the show. Anderson went on to jokingly reveal that she was “humiliated” by the circulation of the clip, stating:


“The look on my face; there’s such delight and shame.”



Catch the full interview below – and skip to 2:36 to see her “delight and shame” for yourself!

Although, really, the real highlight is witnessing Anderson and Colman sliding sideways while gleefully squealing “wheeee!”
