What was the image of Imelda Staunton from The Crown season 5?
The streaming giant unveiled the first image of the 65-year-old actress in costume as Queen Elizabeth.

Furthermore, Netflix captioned the image: “An early glimpse of our new Queen Elizabeth II, Imelda Staunton.”

One replied to the image: “Umbridge? Avada… [Harry Potter killing curse].”
“That is Dolores Umbridge don’t know what you’re talking about,” another said.
“Her majesty Professor Umbridge,” a third fan chipped in.
A fourth exclaimed: “Ahhhh!! I can never not see Umbridge!”
Finally, one fan seemed confused.
“Is this just the actor from Harry Potter!?” they asked in an exasperated fashion.
