She was pretty in a very different from Vanessa Kirby, but young princess Margaret was quite a looker.

The problem with Jonathan Pryce is any time I see him I see Jonathan Pryce. He’s a fine actor but no longer blends into roles, if he ever did. Tobias Menzies did a wonderful job of blending into this part. Read more
