Gillian Anderson at the Emmys

Gillian Anderson won an award for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in The Crown during Sunday night's Emmys.

After the ceremony, a reporter asked her a bizarre question that completely took her by surprise.

The journalist wondered had she spoken to the former Prime Minister before taking on the role.

"Just to continue with the whole Margaret Thatcher thing, first question: have you talked to her about this role at all?"

Gillian was visibly taken aback by the question considering Thatcher died in 2013.

The reporter continued, "And secondly, why do you think it has taken America so long to get a female leader?"

The Crown actress responded, "Uh... well... I... Um... I have not spoken to Margaret."

Twitter's reaction

Fans of The Crown have taken to social media with their reactions to the moment.

One Twitter user joked, 'has anyone asked margaret thatcher if she had spoken to gillian anderson'

Another said, 'Interesting that Gillian Anderson admits she didn't talk to Margaret Thatcher about playing her, but doesn't bother elaborating as to why.'
