Josh O’Connor of the Crown slams “Outrageous” Proposed Fiction Disclaimer
“As with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning, it’s just that,” he said. “Without this, I fear that a generation of viewers who have not witnessed these events may mistake fiction for fact.”
Netflix recently released a statement denying the call to add a disclaimer. “We have always presented The Crown as a drama – and we are confident that our members understand that it is a fiction that is largely based on historical events,” said the streaming service. “As a result, we have no plans – and see no need – to add a disclaimer.”
Ultimately, other stars agree with Josh that a disclaimer is not required. In a previous interview with the Los Angeles Times Emerald Fennell, Who plays Camilla Parker Bowleswas asked to weigh up. While she said the question was “way above” the cast’s pay grade, she reminded fans that it was a TV show.
