The Crown - Season 5 & 6 - Dominic West in talks to play Prince Charles

The Wire and The Affair actor Dominic West is in talks with Left Bank Pictures and Netflix over starring as Prince Charles in Season 5 and 6 of smash-hit royal drama The Crown.

Sources confirmed to Deadline that West has been lined-up for the role, but a deal is not yet done. It caps a frantic few days for the married actor, who has made front-page news in the UK after intimate photographs of him and his The Pursuit of Love co-star Lily James were published last week.

In something of an irony, West would be playing Prince Charles at a time when it was revealed that he was having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles while married to Princess Diana. Parker Bowles is now Charles’ second wife.
