What do i use to fill the gap between ceiling and wall?

I have renewed a lathe and plaster ceiling with 12mm plasterboard which has left a gap between wall and ceiling. What can I fill it with which will be quick and easy. Would the foam type filler do? Thankyou for all the answers. I am having coving fitted. Easiest option!

If it hasn't been skimmed your best bet would be to pull down the new boards, use some roofing lat to bring the joists lower then re board to the new level

I assume this is a gap where the larvae and plaster is about 30mm and the plasterboard is 12.5mm. Apply bonding to the wall and easyfil/ plaster is the quickest and easiest solution

You should have used two layers of plasterboard or have had coving fitted.
