Known for her leading role in The Crown, Claire Foy has described anxious feelings she experienced as something close to "self-protection".

Speaking to The Guardian, the 34 year old said:

"When you have anxiety, you have anxiety about – I don't know – crossing the road. The thing about it is, it's not related to anything that would seem logical."

"It's purely about that feeling in the pit of your stomach, and the feeling that you can't, because you're 'this' or you're 'that'. It's my mind working at a thousand beats a second, and running away with a thought."

"If I knew a day was going to be ruined by anxiety, that was good in a way, because it meant I knew what was going to happen."
 
Season three of The Crown will be on Netflix in 2019 and the first two seasons are streaming in the site now.
