Elizabeth Debicki's interpretation of Princess Diana's iconic interview was superb

Elizabeth Debicki played Princess Diana in the fifth season of "The Crown", and she especially attracted attention with her interpretation of her iconic interview in which she talked about the breakup of her marriage.

The new season of the series "The Crown" also brought the once scandalous interview of Princess Diana in which she said that there were "three of them" in the marriage, alluding to Charles' relationship with Camilla.

Footage showing clips of the original interview side-by-side with how Elizabeth Debicki decided that detail soon began to circulate on social media. Netflix's version of the iconic interview left fans delighted and quite surprised by the actress' performance.

The similarity to the original version caused these recordings to attract considerable attention, and in the comments many praised the fairly adequate representation and imitation of Diana's behavior.

Debicki looks almost identical to the princess with her signature layered blonde hairdo, as she jokes about the breakup of her marriage to then-Prince Charles. "I grew up watching clips of Diana (including this one) shown almost non-stop and she (Debicki) did it fantastically," wrote one satisfied viewer.

"There was something about her and Elizabeth Debicki obviously did a fantastic and respectful job playing Princess Diana," read a number of other comments praising Debicki.

Debicki discussed the criticism the show is receiving

“I don’t really (get defensive),” she says, calmly.

“I understand what the show is, and what it’s trying to do. I also understand the reaction to it. I think this is a period of time that’s been told many times over and will continue to be told, and I know the degree of care and respect people enter into these stories with.

I mean, it is clearly fictional. I feel like audiences know that, because there are actors, playing parts. I never watched The Crown and thought, this is a documentary, or this is obviously true”.
