Corrin will play the late Diana in the forthcoming fourth season of Netflix’s hit royal drama.
“Otherwise it’s a disservice to anyone who has been through that. Diana was very candid about her experience, I so admire that.”
The actor added: “I don’t buy that anyone has a healthy relationship with food. These days there’s so much pressure, especially with social media, to be a certain way.”
It was previously reported that the bulimia storyline has prompted the series to feature sensitivity warnings at the start of several of its episodes.
The series’ producers worked in collaboration with an eating disorder charity to ensure that the subject matter was handled appropriately.
The fourth season of the crown sees Olivia Colman return as Queen Elizabeth II, while Helena Bonham Carter, Tobias Menzies and Gillian Anderson also star.
The entire series will debut on Netflix on Sunday 15 November.
