Emma Corrin went stratospheric following their turn as a wide-eyed Diana, Princess of Wales in The Crown—a part soon to be inherited by Elizabeth Debicki in season five—but the actor’s next role is a far cry from the naive young royal: that of Constance Chatterley in an electrifying Netflix adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s most scandalous novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover. First published in Europe in the ’20s, the explicit tale of a Baronet’s wife who begins a torrid affair with her gamekeeper only found a British publisher in the ’60s—with Penguin Books becoming the subject of a history-making obscenity trial as a result.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover will be streaming on Netflix from December 2.
