For his role as Churchill John Lithgow has said that the makeup process was remarkably uncomplicated and only took about 20 minutes to complete for each session. Apart from a wispy wig, a "plumpers" plate had to be attached to his back teeth in order to accentuate his jowls, and tight collars were used to 'force' the characteristic Churchill 'double chin'. This process was overseen by Ivana Primorac. See more »
John Lithgow as Churchill is 6'4" tall, however Churchill was in reality only 5'8" tall. See more »
The Crown is almost one of the best period movies ( or better say, series of movies ) ever made. It defines the quality of historic period film making with every aspect. The casting is superior, the cinematography is outstanding, the thoughtfully written script just fixes you to the chair and you cannot stop yourself for several hours to watch it through. I personally watched it all twice to digest all the details prepared for the audience. I must admit The Crown easily made me a Netflix fan & a paid member after a quick glimpse at the trailer. A fortune is spent but worth every penny. Thanks to the producers, the amazing directors and the wonderful cast.
