    Since The Crown’s fourth series was released on Sunday, fans have flooded social media with praise for Gillian’s performance.

    The actress will play Thatcher throughout her time in office in the 1980s, with focus on her turbulent relationship with the Royal Family.

    While most simply praised Gillian Anderson for her eerily perfect performance as Thatcher, complete with her famous drawl, others already tipped her for a win at the Emmy Awards in 2021.

    One gushed: ‘Gillian Anderson is the most underrated actor in the biz today. Her range is right up there with Meryl Street.’

    Another added: ‘The Emmy already got Gillian Anderson’s name etched on it.’

    A third also wrote: ‘Gillian Anderson is eating the f**k outta this role, I’m sorry but it’s true.’ 

    One fan tweeted: ‘Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher is simply sublime,’ with one also posting: ‘Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher is legendary!’

    ‘Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher is brilliant! God I love this show and its portrayal of historical events!’ one fan posted, with another adding: ‘Gillian Anderson absolutely BECOMES Thatcher.

    ‘Does Gillian Anderson deserve an emmy for her performance as Margaret Thatcher? yes yes yes,’ a giddy fan also tweeted.

    This would not be the first time an actor received critical acclaim for their performance as a Prime Minister in The Crown, as John Lithgow was awarded with an Emmy and a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as Winston Churchill.

    The Crown’s fourth series focuses on Thatcher’s rise to power and her dramatic social reforms in the 1980s, which divided the country as it led to nationwide poverty and the 1984 miners strike.

    The series also saw the debut of actress Emma Corrin as Princess Diana, depicting her romance and eventual marriage to Prince Charles and how their relationship came to a turbulent end.
