Claire Foy Said Her Daughter Trolled Her on Netflix | Video
Claire Foy Is "Quite Proud" of Her 7-Year-Old's Unexpected Netflix Prank
Drama, action, thrillers — Claire Foy's résumé is stacked with various cinematic genres. Her 7-year-old daughter, Ivy Rose Moore, on the other hand, seems more interested in comedy. During an appearance on "The Graham Norton Show" on Jan. 27, the actor and former "The Crown" star recalled what it was like being trolled by her grade-schooler for the first time.
"I'm quite proud of how she managed to find it and do that."
When asked by Norton if her daughter, who she shares with ex-husband Stephen Campbell Moore, had seen any of her work, Foy replied, "No, I haven't done anything child-friendly." On whether her daughter has at least seen her picture on TV, Foy was quick to detail the 7-year-old's technological expertise: "She has discovered that you can have my face as an [avatar] on Netflix," Foy said, referring to the streamer's option to pick a character from "The Crown" for a profile icon.
"I didn't know that she'd done this. She'd gone to bed and I turned [Netflix] on and there's my face, but she called it 'Nincompoop.'" The audience immediately burst into laughter, Foy included. Still in disbelief, she continued, "I don't think she's ever called anyone a nincompoop but she spelled it perfectly — and it's just my face."
While Foy was originally caught off guard by her daughter's prank, she had a good laugh over the memory alongside Norton and fellow guests Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rob Beckett, and M. Night Shyamalan. "I can't go anywhere near it, but I also can't delete it because I'm quite proud of how she managed to find it and do that," she added.
Foy recently had a mini "The Crown" reunion at the Critics' Choice Awards on Jan. 15, reconnecting with her costar Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip to her Queen Elizabeth II.
