Joan Collins Flawlessly Dishes All About Her Delicious "Manipulating" Role on The Royals
Are you ready for some major mama drama?
The Royals is getting a healthy dose of it on this Sunday's all-new episode, because the flawless and absolutely fierce legend Joan Collins makes her highly anticipated debut, and it's going to give you major nostalgia for her Dynastydays! And the part she's playing? It's oh-so-perfect.
She's playing the queen mother, of course! It was the juiciness of the role that attracted Collins to The Royals in the first place.
"It was a great role," Collins tells E! News. "When I first heard about The Royalsbeing made a long time ago, about a year ago, I mentioned to my agent, 'That sounds like a really interesting project, particularly being done as a scripted series on E! because I think there's not enough scripted series that are particularly glamorous.'"
And the fact that her role on the show is playing Queen Helena's (Elizabeth Hurley) "manipulating" mother was just the cherry on top.
"The character that I'm playing is actually the one in control," Collins says. "She knows what's going on with all the madness and naughtiness and decadence that's going on with the royal family, the fictional royal family. She decides it's time to step in and stop it all. She is the manipulating mom."
The Royals airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on E!
