“Netflix series The Crown is seeking an exceptional young actor to play Prince William in the next series,” reads an ad posted online.
“This is a significant role in this award-winning drama and we are looking for a strong physical resemblance. Filming will begin in early September 2022.”
It continued, “No prior professional acting experience is required. We are very experienced in providing great support to the young actors and their families through a creative process that is uniquely rewarding for them.’
It seems that casting director Stars is also still looking for a baby child star to play Prince Harry in the series.
Both roles are listed on show business websites as speaking roles that do not require experience.
The fifth season of The Crown is slated to premiere on Netflix this November, with Dominic West taking on the role of Prince Charles from Josh O’Connor and Imelda Staunton from Olivia Coleman queen elizabeth II.
The upcoming series will follow Prince Charles’ breakdown in relationship with Princess Diana (played by Elizabeth Debicki) and his subsequent affair with his first love, Camilla Parker-Bowles, before his divorce.
It was previously confirmed that the drama will end with its sixth appearance, followed by the members of the royal family until the early 2000s.
“News from the Palace: We can confirm that there will be a sixth (and final) season of @TheCrownNetflix, in addition to the five previously announced!” The official Netflix Twitter account was created.
Writer/creator Peter Morgan added, “As we began discussing the storylines for Series 5, it quickly became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons. ‘
The Crown season 5 arrives on Netflix in November.
