Claire Foy’s husband battled a brain tumor while she was filming "The Crown" Season 2
After winning a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in the first season of The Crown, Claire Foy had a lot at stake as she filmed Season 2. And the pressure of following up that incredible first season wasn’t the only stress that Foy had to endure during filming: Her husband, Stephen Campbell Moore, was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the end of 2016, right when the first season aired on Netflix.
Moore was diagnosed with a benign growth on his pituitary gland at the base of his brain, according to U.K.’s The Sun, and underwent surgery to remove it while Foy was filming The Crown’s follow-up season.
