`The Crown` undergoes rewrite for Season 6 following Gillian Anderson`s exit

`The Crown` writers were forced to change the script for season six after it was revealed that Gillian Anderson would not be returning.

The 54-year-old actress previously portrayed former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the show but, after scheduling conflicts prevented her from reprising the role, `The Crown` writers had to hastily rewrite some of the scripts, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“Gillian`s portrayal of Thatcher was met with global critical acclaim and she was a huge asset to `The Crown`. It had been hoped she would be able to make an appearance in scenes around the golden wedding but sadly that has not been the case due to scheduling issues,” a source told The Sun newspaper.

“As ever with the series, clever scripting will mean viewers will be none the wiser. It`s been another blow for producers in what`s already been a fairly dogged production.”

Gillian`s portrayal of Thatcher in season four won her an Emmy and a Golden Globe.

Meanwhile, Gillian previously insisted that `The Crown` has made the royal family “more internationally loved, celebrated and understood.” She told Total Film magazine: “It`s a drama. There`s a lot of researchers involved and a lot of people checking and double-checking and triple-checking.”

“There`s a lot that has not been written about that could be written about. And if you knew the difference in those, you`d see there is a great deal of kindness and restraint. And I think, at the end of the day, there are incredibly compassionate and well-rounded takes on human beings.”

“And what you`re left with is properly, maturely drawn, complex characters. And there`s a lot that`s in there that one has to say; if you didn`t do it, we wouldn`t be writing about it. I think the whole family is more internationally loved, celebrated and understood in a way that they wouldn`t be were it not for the show.”
