There's no denying that Jackie Kennedy Onassis was one of the most stylish first ladies in our country's history. As such, we're very excited about the recent announcement that she and the late JFK will be featured as characters on the upcoming season of Netflix's The Crown

In case you haven't already binged the show like we have, it's an award-winning series that chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Season 2 is set to pick up during the 1960s, hence the entrance of the Kennedys into the storyline. Now, thanks to Deadline, we know who is set to play the famous Jackie O. It's up-and-coming actress Jodi Balfour (Quarry, Almost Anything). It's undoubtedly a major role to fill, but from what we've seen of her acting chops and the show's costume department so far, she's definitely set up to succeed.
