‘The Crown’ Releases First Look of Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip
By Rachel McRady
Is anyone else having creepy Captain Jonathan Randall flashbacks?
Outlander villain Tobias Menzies is taking on the role of Prince Philip for The Crown’s third and fourth seasons, and the Netflix series’ official Twitter account just shared the first photo of the 44-year-old British actor in the role.
In the photo posted on Tuesday, Menzies as Prince Philip is dressed to the nines in a tuxedo with his many military medals pinned to his chest. He appears to be looking out the window at Buckingham Palace with a small smile on his face.
The caption for the image simply reads: “Ambition.”
Menzies made a name for himself on Outlander performing ghastly deeds, so there's no telling what trouble he'll get up to as Prince Philip.
“I said a few things to him,” Smith admitted. “I told him a good book to read by Philip Eade called Young Prince Philip, which is very good. You know how it’s like, you can’t offer up too much. But I just said, ‘God, make sure they pay you enough and make sure it’s even.'”
The series became apart of a controversy last year after it was discovered that Smith was paid more than actress Claire Foy, despite the fact that she played Queen Elizabeth.
