LONDON (AP) — Academy Award-winning actress Olivia Colman has been honored by Queen Elizabeth II — the monarch she is about to play on television in "The Crown."

Colman was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE, on Friday in the annual Queen's Birthday Honors list.

The performer won a best-actress Oscar this year for playing 18th-century monarch Queen Anne in "The Favourite." She plays the current queen in the third season of Netflix's royal drama "The Crown," which is currently in production.

Colman said she was "totally thrilled, delighted and humbled" by the honor.
