"The Crown" is looking for an actor for the young Prince Harry (38). In the sixth season of the Netflix series, the searched person is said to embody the 38-year-old Duke of Sussex between the ages of 16 and 20. Among other things, the music theater agency British Youth Music Theater had posted the casting call on Twitter.
According to the casting call, the actor we are looking for does not need experience as a professional actor. More important is the resemblance to the teenage Harry. In addition to a current selfie, interested parties should also send in a short video. Ask them to spend 30 seconds talking about something they enjoy doing. The young mimes can still apply until October 14th. Filming is slated to begin in November.
"The Crown" has already announced completion for the role of Harry's older brother William (40). Two actors will play the current Prince of Wales: 16-year-old Rufus Kampa and 21-year-old Ed McVey. For both it is the debut in front of the camera. But both have been on stage before. It is not yet known whether Harry will also be played by several actors.
The young princess Kate (40) is already certain. Meg Bellamy (19) plays William's future wife. The actress has just graduated from acting school, it is also her first TV role.
The sixth and final season of The Crown will follow the 1997 deaths of William and Harry's mother, Diana. Season five premieres on Netflix on November 9, 2022 and focuses on the early '90s.
