British actor Josh O'Connor opened up about his role as Prince Charles on Netflix series The Crown.
The Emma star, 30, told E!’s Karamo on Live From E!: Countdown to the Golden Globes that he nearly gave up the role that ended up changing the course of his career.
"It's kind of embarrassing, really. I think I was working another job and I got a phone call saying, 'Would I want to come in and read for Charles?' I mean, it was a terrible mistake!" he said.
"Partly, I hadn't seen the show and then I watched the show and realized it's incredible and what Claire [Foy] and Matt [Smith] did in the first two series was magic.”
"I don't know where I'd been, I don't know how I missed this magical show. And then I fell in love with the show, so I met with the guys and they convinced me and just said, 'This is a great part.' And they told me the story and the journey we were going to go on and it was just a no-brainer,” he added.
The role also bagged him a Golden Globe tonight in the category of Best Actor in a Drama Series for his performance as Prince Charles.
