Appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday, Foy was recapping her night at Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony and her role in “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” when she was startled by a Queen Elizabeth II look-alike ― an “Ellen” staffer in costume ― who emerged from a side table.
“I have literally just had a heart attack,” Foy said afterward, amidst giggles.
“I didn’t look him ever directly in the eye,” she quipped.
Later in the interview, DeGeneres challenged Foy to a game of “Heads Up,” in which the actress had to try on Italian, Canadian and French accents for size.
“There is a quote, and I am not sure if I am remembering it right … ‘Having the option of doing the extraordinary makes the ordinary more extraordinary.’ That makes sense to me,” she said, later adding, “I am very confident in saying I deserve a rest.”
