Who will be chosen to play the young Harry?
From July, the fifth season of The Crown, a series marking the history of the British royal family, will be filmed. Fans are eagerly awaiting the sequel to Netflix’s hit show. But for now, the producers are facing a big problem. True, this new section takes place in the 90’s, from 1990 to 1997, more precisely. Therefore, the film crew is looking for an actor to play when Prince Harry is 6 and 13 years old.
But unfortunately, finding the right performer can be very difficult. The reason? Shortage of red actors! In addition, the people responsible for casting at Netflix have a long list of very specific requirements for casting. In this case, the production wants the young actor playing the role of Harry to be as naturally red as Prince. Research that guarantees that it is very dangerous. The streaming platform therefore modifies its requirements downwards and calls the actor with colored hair.
