Actresses who have played her in film and television –

A wonderful range of actors played Queen Elizabeth II, who died today at the age of 96. The range of her life has been just as remarkable, from Oscar and Emmy-winning biopics to comedies, family movies and animated spoofs.

One actress played the royal for almost as long as she reigned: Jeannette Charles tried out the part at least five times in 50 years. Three actresses played Elizabeth during the run Crown, the fifth season of which will soon be released on Netflix. A surprising number of men have also played the part, including Fred Armisen on SNL.
