Ben Daniels plays Princess Margaret’s husband, Lord “Tony” Snowdon. 

Season 3 will chronicle the infamous end of their tumultous marriage. 

“[They’re] completely addicted to each other,” says Daniels of the former couple. “Even right up until the minute they were getting divorced, they still had a really strong physical relationship. People often said that it was like foreplay for them, having a big row. They would have these huge rows and then amazing sex.”
