Gillian Anderson showed a laugh-out-loud funny clip of the Crown cast dancing to Lizzo's hit "Good as Hell" in an interview with Seth Meyers. And it looks like the most fun they've had since a jolly good round of Ibble Dibble

The most recent series of The Crown dropped in 2020, but it seems to be the gift that keeps giving. Now, the fantastic cast is delighting us with a clip of them dancing around on set. 

The Crown's fourth season featured Olivia Coleman as the Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles, and Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip. The scandelousw storylines have had viewers glued to their sofas, with many asking how true is The Crown when it comes to the real royal family? 

Gillian Anderson (The X Files, Sex Education) also joined the cast to portray the controversial former conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

In an interview, Gillian revealed that the cast blew off steam on the set while shooting a funeral scene by dancing. 

Gillian explained that Olivia Coleman had come up with the idea. “Well Olivia apparently does a dance class with her friends on a regular basis and the last time she did the class they had danced to that Lizzo song,” she said.

Choreographed by Olivia Coleman, the Queen herself, The Crown's cast were taught some basic dance moves to Lizzo’s Good as Hell and performed for the crew. It seems that the cast members aren’t as formal as their Crown counterparts, and all joined in on the fun. 

The actress revealed that despite Olivia’s promises to only share it with her dance group, the video has now become a viral sensation. 

Gillian laughed as she said, “It was never meant to see the light of day and yet here we are!”

Gillian also revealed that her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher has accidentally crept into her role as Jean Milburn in Netflix’s Sex Education.

That is particularly hilarious as her character in Sex Education is a sex therapist who preaches about masturbation and sexual education to the masses. That character could not be more different from the conservative PM, who was far less open-minded and absolutely not an advocate of sexual liberation. 

The star revealed, “I did the third season of Sex Ed, and she [Thatcher] kind of snuck in there every once in a while.” Gillian stated that she occasionally had to apologize on the set of Sex Education and ask to reshoot the scene as she could feel her Thatcher mannerisms coming to the surface. 

This is certainly the news we needed to perk us up in grey January...
