Olivia Colman is WORLDS away from The Crown

Saving the glam for a reigny day! Olivia Colman is WORLDS away from The Crown as she swaps the Queen’s tiaras for a baseball cap and padded winter coat during low-key stroll

She has won huge praise for her role of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown.

Yet Olivia Colman was brought hurtling down from Buckingham Palace as she stepped out in London in a super low-key ensemble.  

The Oscar winner, 46, sported a cosy padded coat and baseball cap as she emerged, in a look which was hardly recognisable from her on-screen ensembles.

Olivia kept things pared-back as she stepped out, with the warm black coat helping keep out the chill and baseball cap giving her a low-profile. 

Her short, curly brunette locks were just visible under the cap, and looked totally different from the Queen’s trademark coiffed crop.  

Olivia won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series for her role in the show, where she was cast in 2017. She has starred in two series. 

It comes after it was reported that Olivia is set to star in a socially distanced version of pantomime, Cinderella, alongside The Crown co-star Helena Bonham Carter.
