The 51-year-old actor is reportedly in talks to replace Josh O’Connor as the storyline shifts, following the royal marriage with Princess Diana and the ongoing romance with Charle’s future second wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The acclaimed star is known for playing officer Jimmy McNulty in the HBO series The Wire and seems like a perfect fit for such an already successful ensemble, making the audience eager for what the royal drama will be bringing for season five and six.

Dominic would be starring alongside Imelda Stauton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret.

West seems to be involved in a real-life drama himself, as news of his affair with  Mamma Mia!  star Lily James have been going around, including candid photos from their romantic getaway in Rome and the official statement of her wife after their 10-year-marriage together.
