She told ELLE: ‘We had this moment of reunion as if we were long-lost sisters. It was so nice. It’s because you’re part of a family.’

Talking about the casting process for The Crown, she continued: ‘It was absolutely surreal, looking back. I don’t know how I didn’t go a bit insane. I think I probably did go a bit insane. 

‘I initially went in to help read when they were choosing a girl to play Camilla for season 3 —they were choosing between five girls and I needed to chemistry read with them. 

‘I’d met Nina Gold, the casting director, a couple of times for different things. They called my agent and said, “Oh, can Emma come in and help read. We’ll pay her, it’s not an audition, we just need someone to read for Diana in these scenes. 

‘Josh [O’Connor] will be there, and all the producers and the director and casting directors will be there.” It was an absolutely absurd situation.’

Emma added that although it wasn’t an audition, she treated it as one, she continued: ‘I treated it as an audition—a very non-pressure audition. I think that’s a great lesson in retrospect, on making opportunities your own. 

‘I did a lot of work on her and the character and it was a lot of fun because she’s a phenomenal person to read about and to explore.’

Emma added that they suddenly asked her to go on camera and her agent advised her against it as they are ‘so far from casting’.

She recalled: ‘Then they asked me to go on camera and if they could work on the character a bit with me, which I thought was weird.

‘I remember going outside and calling my agent and being like, “Maya, something changed in that room. I think they were interested. The director wanted to work with me and then they introduced me to some people, and they wanted me to go on tape.”

‘I remember Maya being like, “Emma, don’t you dare. Absolutely not.” She’s like, “They are so far from casting. Just leave it.”‘

Emma admitted it has been a ‘bit terrifying’ propelling to fame at such a fast speed but at the same time ‘exciting’.

She said: ‘I’m being asked this a lot: “Are you ready for it to change?” Which is a bit terrifying, to be honest.’

Emma continued: ‘All these feelings of excitement, the novelty of it, the fear and the confusion, that’s all what she would have been feeling, almost like play by play. It’s crazy. 

‘There’s a lot of people saying, “Oh, I’m really worried you’ll change.” Which is horrible to hear, because I’m like, “I don’t want to.”‘

Emma shared the advice co-stars Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Colman have given her. They play Princess Margaret and The Queen in the Netflix series.

She said: ‘The one thing I’ve been told by Helena and Olivia is just keep your head down, work hard, keep really good people around you.

Elsewhere in the special issue, Taylour Paige spoke about Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom  co-star Chadwick Boseman, who tragically passed away in August aged 43 from colon cancer.   

She said: ‘I didn’t know he was sick. People are going to be stunned by his performance, but now I feel he should win an Oscar just for acting like he was okay.’
