Now that Downton Abbey has wrapped up, the Netflix series The Crown has taken its place as the favorite costume drama. So with just so many British actors, is it surprising that The Crown is poaching some of the talent (and characters) from Downton Abbey? In the last season of Downton Abbey, the widowed Lady Mary finally finds love again with Henry Talbot (Matthew Goode), who will also be playing Antony Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon, the husband of Princess Margaret.
The First Earl of Snowdon, born Antony Charles Robert Armstrong-Jones, recently passed away at the age of 86, but the name will be more familiar in late 2017 when his character joins the royal story on the Netflix series The Crown, as the husband of Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II, according to the Inquisitr. Though Lord and Lady Snowdon later divorced, they had a great love story, and added two children to the royal family. Armstrong-Jones was an international photographer who introduced Princess Margaret to the world of Hollywood and rock n' roll.
