Netflix Inc’s Emmy-winning drama The Crown paused filming of its sixth and final season on Friday, September 9 following the death of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, a central figure on the show.

The streaming service said production was suspended “as a mark or respect” for the monarch, who died Thursday at age 96 after 70 years on the throne. Filming also will be stopped on the day of the queen’s funeral, Netflix said.

Claire Foy won two Emmys and a Golden Globe for playing Queen Elizabeth as a young woman who suddenly became queen at age 25.
