Sarah Ferguson wanted to work on ‘The Crown’: ‘But they didn’t want to help me’ | Property

PropertySarah Ferguson, 61, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, wanted to star in Netflix’s series The Crown. She announced this in a recent interview. Sarah is a fan of the series, but she felt her character wasn’t showing enough. Her first novel could then be turned into a movie.

The Crown reaches its climax with its dramatic depiction of life in the British royal family. But Ferguson reached out to the award-winning show’s creators with a message that actress Jessica Aquilina, who plays Sarah, wasn’t seen much. She herself considers her role much greater. “I offered to help them,” she says. “To better understand life behind the walls of Buckingham Palace.” However, Netflix didn’t want to find out, as it turns out. “They refused to help me,” Fergie said disappointedly.

Fortunately, she does not have to rely on Netflix for her television career. The Duchess of York is also in talks about the television rights to her first novel. At least one streaming service has already signed up to turn “Her Heart for a Compas” into a “Bridgerton”-style drama series.

The book, a historical drama, will be released in early August in the United Kingdom and the United States. The story is based on one of Ferguson’s ancestors, as she previously told social media. “I have researched my family history for the past few years using the royal archives. So the book contains a lot of detail from the Victorian era. I also used the story of my life and experiences. So it is a story very close to my heart.”
