Gillian Anderson appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers this week to discuss The Crown, of course, in which she plays the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
And during the interview, she brought up a cringe-y dance video from the cast that was “never meant to see the light of day”.
“Olivia [Colman] apparently does a dance class in the area that she lives with a bunch of friends, on a regular basis, and the last time she did the class, they had danced to that Lizzo song,” Anderson said.
“She asked if we would happen to be interested in maybe doing it, and she would video it. And then she would share it only with her friends – the other dancers. So it was never meant to see the light of day.”
Watch below as The Crown‘s cast (in full costume) performs a choreographed dance to Lizzo’s 2016 hit “Good as Hell.” (Has it really been five years?)

Said Seth, after watching: “You guys are really good”. To which Anderson claimed the video was “so humiliating”.
She added: “The look on my face – there’s such delight and shame.”
Meyers said he thought Anderson “did a better job than Margaret Thatcherwould have done”, but “acknowledging that’s a pretty low bar”.
