Actor Robson Green gives his best impression of the Queen to prepare Jim Murray to audition for the role of Prince Andrew in the Netflix drama. He said he just wanted to go fishing with his friends
Robson Green transformed into the Queen on a fishing trip to help her best friend land a role in The Crown.
The actor, 57, left his best impression of the Queen in preparation for Jim Murray to audition for the role of Prince Andrew in the Netflix drama.
He said: “All I wanted to do was relax, take a break from the action and go fishing with my best mate.
“Then Jim told me that he had been asked to audition for The Crown and asked if I had read the part of The Queen.
“Even before he uttered the first line, I knew he would understand.
“He changed his hair, the way he looked and himself. He turned into Prince Andrew.
“We read it and he smashed it the first time. Next thing I knew was a message from him saying he was in. “
The pair traveled around Iceland for the ITV series Robson and Jim’s Icelandic Fly Fishing Adventure and are working on six sequels called Robson and Jim’s British Fly Fishing Adventure.
McDonald’s and Dodds star Jim, 47, said of the reading on the banks of the River Dee in North Wales: “Robson is the greatest male Geordie Queen ever.
“When I was invited to audition, I thought ‘This is going to get in the way of fishing’ and then I thought ‘It’s The Crown, that’s a big deal.’ I love a challenge. ”
Robson is also known for his collaboration with Jerome Flynn on the ITV series Soldier Soldier and recently confirmed that they are set to return to television.
