Claire Foy reacted to Nicki Minaj’s extremely enthusiastic response to her appearance in The crown.
The British actor made a surprise appearance in the fifth and penultimate series, which was released on Netflix last month.
Those who tuned in to see what new cast member Imelda Staunton would bring to the role of Queen Elizabeth II were immediately treated to comparison in the form of Foy, who played the character for the first two seasons.
Foy won acclaim, as well as two Emmys, for her performance — and her season five cameo was widely appreciated on social media.
One appreciative onlooker was rapper Minaj, who said of her appearance, “I can’t get enough of Claire Foy’s perfect face. I want to eat it. He does just the right thing in every scene.
Foy appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, November 30, where the host read Minaj’s words to the actor.
“Fans of The crown was very excited because you had a cameo,” Fallon said.
“You came back and gave us a little treat. But I don’t think anyone was more excited than… you know who’s your biggest fan? Nicki Minaj.”
Foy called the situation “ridiculous” and, after Fallon read him the quote, the actor replied, “I would totally let her eat my face.”
The actor added, “She might try. I mean, she might gnaw on it a bit.
After The Crown season 5 was released, many admitted to having “struggled” with the casting of two different actors – one because of their “heat”, and the other because of a previous role. that they played in Harry Potter.
Meanwhile, the season five scene that infuriated Dame Judi Dench has been revealed.
Foy will next be seen in women who talk, a film directed by Sarah Polley with Rooney Mara and Jessie Buckley. The film is released in the UK on February 10, 2023.
