J. Sta. Ana - Contributor

Probably one of the fast-rising actresses in today's entertainment industry, Claire Foy has nowhere to go with her career but up. The English actress from the town of Stockport, United Kingdom may have known right from the start that she wants to take the acting path. It wasn't easy just like with everyone else before she got the international recognition that she deserves.

Claire Foy debuted onscreen in the pilot episode of the hit supernatural TV drama Being Human in 2008. That same year, she starred in other series such as Doctors and Little Dorrit where she played the lead character as Amy Dorrit. The classic show only aired for 14 episodes but this only boosted her way to catch the world's attention.

She also played remarkable supporting roles like her performance in First Man with Ryan Gosling that premiered in 2018. Foy is also the new Lisbeth Salander in the remake of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amongst these notable roles, her performance as Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown stole the limelight.

In one of her interviews, Claire shared the news that she even met the real Queen in person. Now, that's a reel to real, real quick! Her admiration for the Head of the State may have been another edge for her almost-perfect portrayal of her Royal Highness. However, after two seasons, Netflix revealed that Olivia Colman will take over her role. Claire Foy has already marked her legacy in the show business playing monarchial roles and this is something that we can probably never take away from her.

Through these shows, Claire received multiple trophies and medals of honor. We listed below some of the most-deserved Claire Foy awards and nominations. Now, go and judge for yourself!
