In an exclusive sneak peek at the special bonus featurette “Triumph & Tragedy: Diana and Charles,” Corrin opens up about her personal connection with the so-called “Peoples’ Princess.”

“We’ve certainly not been a show that wants to do lookalikes,” director and executive producer Benjamin Caron shares in the clip, above. “We’ve wanted to find the best actor that can inhabit that character. This was the first time we had an actor who absolutely could inhabit the essence of Diana but also looked scarily like her.”

The resemblance wasn’t lost on Corrin who reveals that the similarities extend to her own mother. “It was very daunting,” admits the British actress. “Not only because of the part being significant as an actor and the show being incredible but also because I think I’ve always been aware of Diana as someone who I felt a… connection to.”

“My mum looks quite a bit like her and on the day Diana died, my mum got on a train and people fainted because they thought it was her,” says Corrin. See how else the actress feels connected to the princess in the full sneak peek above.
