Emma Corrin insisted that ‘The Crown’ include scenes of Princess Diana’s bulimia battle

Actress Emma Corrin who portrays Princess Diana in The Crown, a historical drama television series aired on Netflix, wanted to portray Princess Diana’s secret struggles with an eating disorder “in an honest way”.

Princess Diana suffered from Bulimia and was fairly open about her struggles with the same. Therefore the actress suggested that the scriptwriters of the royal drama include detailed scenes depicting Diana’s Bulimia.

In an interview with Radio Times, the actress stated, “We’d been working on her body language, and we put together a document that we sent to the script team and said: ‘Can you include some of this in the writing because we’d love to really flesh out those scenes?’ “

“I felt that if we were trying to depict bulimia in an honest way, we had to actually show it – otherwise it’s a disservice to anyone who has been through that,” the actress added. “I don’t think we should shy away from those conversations; Diana was very candid about her experience with bulimia, and I so admire that.”

According to Variety, in order to work out this part, the actress did extensive research on eating disorders. “Diana was very candid about her experience with bulimia, and I so admire that,” the actress stated.

Corrin felt that doing justice to Princess Diana’s emotions and feelings without including this wouldn’t be possible. “It was so symptomatic of the emotional turmoil and all the suppressed emotions that she was feeling.” said the actress.
