Elizabeth Debicki felt ‘bereft’ on ‘The Crown’ set with out her onscreen kids
“I think the most important thing,” Debicki informed Newsweek, “one of the areas that I have always focused on and found a huge amount of joy and creative joy and personal joy, is the relationship with her children.”
“That to me was always the centre [sic]—that’s the tent poll,” she defined. “It’s also the times that I feel the happiest on set. I feel the most connected to the scene. I feel the most supported.”
The 33-year-old continued, saying she herself felt unmoored if the actors who performed William and Harry weren’t along with her. “You know, I quite literally, when the kids aren’t on set, I feel quite bereft,” she mentioned. “I’ve always felt quite bereft. And sometimes you have a half-day where you know they’re coming in the afternoon. And I always just thought, ‘When are the kids here?’”
“I just wanted to be with them. And they made me feel whole in a way, and they make me feel more ‘her,’” she added. “They’re glorious to work opposite. And I’ve been so blessed that all the kids who have been cast in this have been the most sublime actors, little actors.”
“That to me is the kind of key, I think,” she went on. “And it’s also the place that I’ve been happiest playing her.”

“I hope what comes across in season 6, too, is that there’s this little trio of love between them,” she mentioned. Debicki defined her analysis confirmed her how “incredibly important” making Harry and William really feel regular was to Diana.
“It was so incredibly important for the real Diana to really kind of make what was an extremely unusual set of circumstances, duties, responsibilities for children to endure,” she mentioned. “To try and make them feel at times just as regular as possible and do things that kids want to do — go to the cinema, go to the store, go on vacation.”
