Michael C Hall & Jodi Balfour Join THE CROWN

by on

Netflix show The Crown has added Michael C Hall and Jodi Balfour to portray a very famous couple.

The Crown tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s early reign as the fragile social order established after WWII breaks apart.

Hall and Balfour will play President Jack Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

JFK is most at home in front of a crowd — a natural leader and excellent public speaker who does not take kindly to being upstaged by anyone, especially his wife. Although Jackie’s accomplishments are perceived to be an asset to the president, JFK feels unmanned by his wife’s popularity. In public, he seeks revenge by flaunting his many infidelities and, behind closed doors, his jealousy surfaces in the form of anger and manipulation.

Jackie Kennedy is described as a seemingly natural First Lady, but whose charming exterior of confidence and glamour hides a shy woman who loathes public life.
