Esquire looks to none other than Matt Smith to star in its latest style shoot. The star of The Crown, Smith appears in the magazine’s December 2017 issue. The English actor sports essential menswear with a focus on coats. Will Davidson photographs Smith while Nick Sullivan curates an impressive wardrobe. Appearing in casual images, Smith wears brands like Canali, Hermès, and Burberry.
Smith also talks to the magazine about playing Prince Philip on The Crown.
He gave up everything, literally everything, that made him a man, says Smith.
He had such a wonderful naval career, and for that to be taken away from him, and then to have to walk two steps behind his wife in public for the whole of his life–but he has a lion’s pride about him, so there were a lot of very interesting conflicts to play.
