WASHINGTON DC: Here's good news for movie buffs out there! Gillian Anderson will be soon seen playing Margaret Thatcher on Netflix popular series 'The Crown'.

But the actor will appear in the show from the fourth season, which is under production currently in the United Kingdom, reported Fox News.

"I am so excited to be joining the cast and crew of 'The Crown' and to have the opportunity to portray such a complicated and controversial woman," Anderson said in a statement, which was posted on the show's Twitter account.

"Thatcher was undoubtedly formidable but I am relishing exploring beneath the surface and, dare I say, falling in love with the icon who, whether loved or despised, defined an era," she continued.

Margaret Thatcher was the first female prime minister to serve from 1979 to 1990 and leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990.

The legendary leader took her last breath in April 2013 at the age of 87.
