Star of Netflix’s drama The Crown, Claire Foy thanked a number of ‘extraordinary women’ – including The Queen – as she accepted a Golden Globe award on Sunday night.
Foy, who plays Elizabeth II in the series, won Best Actress for the role at the ceremony in Beverly Hills, alongside some of TVs biggest names.
She said: “When you play a real-life person it’s tricky, and you reply very much on the people around you. So I’m going to dedicate this to all the people around me.” Foy thanked the directors and the show’s creator Peter Morgan.
“I really, really, really wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for some extraordinary women, and I’m going to thank them,” the actress continued. “One of them is Queen Elizabeth II. She has been at the centre of the world for the past 63 years, and I think the world could do with a few more women at the centre of it, if you ask me.”
Claire then went on to praise her daughter: “And finally, another extraordinary woman in the making, my girl. I love you, you’re the future, and oh, you’re just brilliant.”
The Crown also did well, taking the globe for ‘Best TV Series – Drama’, beating Game of Thrones.
